I'll be visiting Chicago (first time) to run the marathon near the end of October, looking for some wallet friendly chow cuisine.
I'm staying at the Best Western Inn on E Ohio St. (means nothing to me) and would like recommendations for the following:
Quick, cheap, tasty (maybe ethnic?) for Friday night (my flight arrives at 5:30)
Breakfast/brunch/lunch on Saturday
Sushi Saturday night
Group dinner for Sunday night - varied menu, doesn't have to be 'chowish' but should have big portions, good quality food.
Withing walking distance which for me means a few miles. I'll take transit if it's worth it. Other than Sunday night I'll probably be dining alone.
Also a decent grocery store nearby where I can pick up some snacks and pre-marathon morning food (yogurt, juice, fruit, etc.).
Thanks in advance!
