Help! I work in the heart of Lincoln Park, Armitage and Clark, and would appreciate help in identifying GOOD spots for lunch within reasonable walking distance (I am recovering from a much broken foot).

This afternoon we caved in and tried RJ Grunts. I have never been a big fan of Lettuce venues and find myself even less so after my experience at Grunts this afternoon. Doggie Diner is a bit too far for this gimp, at least for now, and even so might pall (or become unhealthily caloric) three or four times a week. Ranalli's is overpriced, beyond awful in service and unremarkable as far as the menu and its execution. The Original Pancake House is not very interesting but might do on occasion, have not tried it since beginning this gig. Any thoughts would be appreciated. I cannot help but believe that there are some gems hiding out there and hope that y'all will clue me in.
