Fellow chowhounder from Singapore here. Trying to construct a one day chicago foodfest and wanted to get your thoughts. Timing is a friday in late August.
Lunch: Hot Doug's (ona friday, when can I go to avoid massive lines)
Dinner: Zocalo or Frontera (or is there another option closer to loop/River north)
Dessert: Hot Chocolate (via brown line; do I need a reservation on a Friday night for dessert)
Any other thoughs/suggestions would be appreciated.
