Chicago Recs for a San Francisco Hound

Foodnut8 | Jul 11, 201811:04 PM     9

Heading to Chicago for the first time. Staying by the Loop.

Alinea is on the list.

Need other recommendations for spots that are unique to Chicago. (In Phila we loved Zahav. Something SF lacks.)

Prefer mid-range spots not too far away.

Definitely will want to try the best pizza (Lou Malnati's Pizzeria, Giordano, Pequod's Pizzeria?), Hot dogs (Portillo's ?)..?

Thanks in advance!
