Chicago Chows, I'll be coming to stay for almost a week in August, with my teenage daughter (who eats fairly widely). I'm wondering what the best neighborhood to stay in would be from a food perspective, with good access to the rest of the city. We would be using the el and buses, not renting a car.
We're coming from the San Francisco Bay Area, so we're less interested in the Asian foods we can get here. We're more interested in stuff that's harder to get (or not as good) here--Greek, German, Italian, Jewish delis, maybe a steak. We're big coffee and pastry fans. I'd probably make an exception to that for upscale Mexican, since Chicago seems so strong in that. We tend to go for moderate priced places rather than fine dining. We're willing to stay at either a hotel or an Airbnb. Thanks for any thoughts.
