Off the beaten pah Chicago eats for a first timer

Basscadet | Mar 18, 201501:50 PM

I am visiting Chicago for the first time on the crowded weekend of July 2 - July 5th. I'm trying to plan places to eat as I am sure the city is going to be crowded everywhere unless its like NYC during the holidays and everyone leaves....is that how it is?
I am from NY and I am into all kinds of food. I'm planning to do one nice dinner, probably Alinea unless someone convinces me otherwise. Other than that I want simple and easy places to eat good food.
Chicago style pizza or hot dog?
Sit down restaurants perhaps an L ride away....
GO

Alinea
