Hello fellow foodies!
I am going to Chicago for about a week pretty soon, and I am looking for some of the best food around. I am particularly looking for slightly out-of-the-way places that are smaller and unknown by most tourists. Another way to phrase that is that I am looking for the gems. Two members of my party are pescetarian, no meat, but fish, but a restaurant with some meat is good. I would prefer places with $10-$25 entrees. Also, fun places, like breweries, donut-shops, and ice cream places would be great, too. Lastly, I am particularly looking for places in or close to Near North, Old Town, or Gold Side.
Thanks so much, and I look forward to exploring the culinary delights Chicago has to offer!
