Going to Chicago (Sorry I Can't Try Ewe)

Jim Leff | May 11, 2010 08:58 AM

I'll be in Chicago for a few days...my first visit over twelve hours in twenty years.

So...what's unmissable? Stuff I can't find (or find great) in NY, plus extremely delicious....?

I'll be sticking to public transportation, so I'd prefer to stay within the city. Special interest in potatoes.

Questions:

Is deep dish pizza pretty ossified as a genre at this point?

Is the ice cream parlor in the museum of science and industry still great?

Any great breakfast near the theater district (where I'm staying)?

Any Yucatan food, especially shark panuchos?

Is Toblapampo/Frontera still worth a try, or is it played out? (hopefully this minor question won't totally take over the thread!)

Want to stay up to date with this post?
