I'm new to Chow and I have been doing research for me and my wife'sfirst trip to Chicago. We will be there for a week at the begining of August. We are looking for some good food. I have come up with a list of places that look interesting to us. We will be staying in the heart of the Loop. We don't mind traveling a bit but nothing to far (I do realize Hot Doug's is a trek but It is an execption). We don't mind the type of restaurant as long as the food is good, we will eat in divey ethnic place to nice fine dining and everything in between. I also have a BYOB section we are on a budget so would like to do a little saving there. Please let me know if there are any places on my list I should avoid, I know it is a big list for a week and I am trying to make it more managable.
