Cheap dinner in the Loop

pjgoetz | Jan 25, 2012 10:07 AM

I will be staying in the Palmer House for a weekend in Chicago, and I'm looking for a cheap dinner on Friday night. I've been reading up on a number of places that sound promising (Oasis Cafe, Heaven on Seven), but they all close before 6pm. Since I frequently run into this problem when I go to Chicago for a weekend and need to get a pretty fast dinner before heading to the Siskel Theater at 8pm, I thought I would ask you all. The other caveat is that my traveling companion is lactose-intolerant so pizza and heavy-cheese places will not be good. Are there any options? Can we make it to the French Market and grab something quickly?
