I'm at a conference in the Forest Park area (Eric Newman Center), right on the Metrolink. I am seriously considering skipping out of tonight's rubber chicken banquet. Does anyone have a recommendation for somewhere good, but casual? Somewhere that is an easy on-off from the Metrolink or a quick cab ride? Somewhere a singleton diner won't feel too out of place? I think the Hill is nearby, but I don't know anything about the restaurants there (and I won't really have time to do much research this afternoon while sitting in break-out sessions). I'd love some local Italian flavor, but I'm really not a picky eater.
Sorry this is so last minute. I am making a game-day decision on the banquet after reviewing the lunch spread!
