I know you guys get a lot of these type of questions. If it's any comfort, so do we on the San Francisco Bay Area board. I've got your terrific FAQ, but I'd love to hear the latest and greatest. Begging your indulgence, I'd like guidance on the following:
I'm planning to be in Chicago for a long weekend soon. The trip does not allow for full time chowing, but I might be able to get as many as two chowish breakfasts/brunches; two lunches, and two dinners. My best eating day will be Sunday, so I'm interested in places that are open then. My goal would be types of food that are better than in the Bay Area. From reading the board that sounds like:
Italian beef sandwiches
Upscale Mexican (it's hard for me to accept that you're competitive with LA, but the Board has convinced me to try)
I'm planning to stay at the Seneca on Chestnut St., which I know has several restaurants. I'm not planning to rent a car, but I'm willing to make reasonable trips on transit--train or bus. I'd be happy to get out of downtown, but deep suburbia is probably out.
