I'm staying in Chicago (1st time!) in the Magnificent Mile area for a conference (4-7 Jan) so I'd imagine the area is probably not the best for good (cheaper: $20-$30 for one) ethnic food, but I thought I'd ask. Also, is there anything someone visiting Chicago absolutely 'must' have? Is it a myth about pizza? What about a (not necessarily ethnic) brunch on Sunday? I don't mind a short commute. Thanks!! And Happy New Year!
