downtown Springfield IL

Wanda | Jul 11, 200609:43 PM     9

I'll be taking the train to Springfield, IL, and staying downtown near the Capitol without a car, though I don't mind walking quite a ways, as long as it's safe, trafficwise and securitywise. I'll be there midweek, not weekend. What can you recommend in the way of good food at reasonable prices? I like ethnic food, especially Latin American, Asian other than Japanese, Caribbean, Mideastern, and German/eastern European. I also like a good steakhouse or nouvelle restaurant if it isn't too expensive--especially one where maybe I can get a good buy at lunch. I also like a good bakery. I think my hotel has continental breakfast but in case that stinks, I'd like a breakfast tip too. Also, if there is a restaurant (including in hotel) that is historically or architecturally worth seeing, I'd be interested; if it's too expensive, I can just have a drink.
