My mom, daughter (age 5), and I will be having a girl's weekend in Chicago in early July. While we have the requisite meal at American Girl already reserved, I'd love recommendations for other spots that are kid friendly and that will also satisfy my mom and me.
Specifically, any good lunch or dinner places near the Ritz? Am willing to cab it if needed. No chains please. We are coming from Minneapolis and Dallas so we have our fill of chains at home. My daughter is a somewhat adventurous eater with good manners. She loves sushi/Japanese, Korean, Chinese, and Italian.
Thanks for your help!
