Chicago Avenue--tips, hints, advice?

john m | Apr 30, 200302:07 PM

As wonderful as Chowhound has been for my palate, it has not done wonders for my waistline, so in an effort to rid myself of the gut that I've come to fondly refer to as "the Alderman", I've embarked on a program of lunchtime walks. I work at Sedgwick and Superior, and have taken to walking up Chicago to Damen or so and back. But, in the interests of killing two birds with one stone,and replacing any lost poundage in a timely fashion, I'm seeking any insights you folks might have regarding interesting places on that stretch of road. I'm familiar with Kasia's, Tecatiltlan, and a few others, but most of the others are a mystery to me.
I'm also planning on walking Grand and Milwaukee as well, so suggestions for those strips would be welcome as well (I'm a big fan of Bari, to the point that I've never really looked beyond it.)

NB. I'm well aware of the oxymoronic nature of my request, and won't hold anyone here responsible for the failure of my exercise program.

NNB. I also tried searching Chicago and Chicago Avenue with the Ctrl F function. Too many unrelated hits and not enough time.
