Coming to Chicago for Northwestern graduation ceremonies next weekend. We are renting a place near Clark & Foster. . We do have plans to visit the Hopleaf since I love beer but need some help on other places.
Here are the recommendations I am hoping for:
1. A good grocery store
2. Mexican or middle eastern lunch spot
3. Breakfast diner
4. Restaurant for dinner that can handle a larger group - 10 people. Italian or steak would be cool. Moderate price level.
5. Neighborhood bar with good food.
We will have a car and can take taxies but would like to stay closer rather than spend too much time in the car.
