Austin CH visiting Chicago with toddler - need recs for lunch in millenium park

mlin1 | Sep 26, 201112:57 PM

Im visiting with my 3 yo daughter this weekend from Texas and we will be staying with family near Millenium Park (on N Michigan, across the street from the Bean). I need a casual but delicious lunch spot (within a short cab ride) in that area as we will be heading to the American Girl store, Disney store, etc. Purple Pig, Sable, and Cafe Spiaggia were some options I read about but I am not a huge charcuterie fan and have heard mixed review of Cafe Spiaggia. Would Publican be kid friendly? Any recs would be appreciated. Any spots for lunch near Navy Pier, Lincoln Zoo, or Shedd Aquarium would help also.

In the past, some of my fav spots in Chicago have been Avec, Girl and the Goat, Urban Belly, XOCO, Alinea, Topolobampo. For this visit I am already planning a dinner at Avec, Girl and the Goat is booked, and Urban Belly is too far away. Im also going to pass on any Latin/Mexican this time round(had enough in Austin lately). Thanks in advance!
