I'm visiting on business (solo) from New York for a few days, and don't have any plans for dinner or know anyone local. I'm just hoping to survive the next couple of days, and so I'm looking for good, easy food near the Westin Chicago River North so that I can skip room service (got in late last night and ended up spending $30 on a wet pizza and a pot of tea) or hotel restaurants. Preferably places that are either easy for takeout or compatible with solo dining hunched over a casefile. And bonus points for thai or Mexican.
I realize this isn't the most exciting post - but I looked out my hotel window last night and I couldn't see any evidence of street life, i.e. I have no idea where to go and am desperate. Many thanks for any help!
