Chicago - this weekend

hamm | Nov 8, 2007 06:41 AM

My girlfriend and I are visiting Chicago for the first time this weekend and are staying at the Palmer House Hilton.

We both want something fun with good food. Both love trendy restaurants.

From a family recommendation we heard that Rosebud's in Little Italy is a must. Any thoughts on this restaurant?

We need another place for dinner, thinking about Rockit Bar & Grill for something casual.

Also some places for lunch and of course, the traditional deep dish pizza. We plan on doing sight seeing most of the day and will probably stop off and grab a quick lunch somewhere, but if anyone has any ideas for a good lunch spot we are open to any suggestions.

Have penned in Orange on Harrison judging by other recommendations on the board, sounds very interesting and different and can't wait to try it out.

And another thing (and maybe most important), both of us are from Pittsburgh and since our flight doesn't leave until the evening on Sunday, would love to find a Steeler bar to watch the game. I checked the website for Steeler bars across the country and came up with the following bars:

Durkin's Bar on West Diversity Pkwy
Joe's on West Weed Street
The Dark Horse Tap and Grill on North Sheffield

Does anyone know anything about these places, quality of atmosphere/food, proximity to hotel or other sightseeing places, and ease of getting to O'Hare airport from them?

Many thanks in advance for your help!
