My husband and I will be in Chicago for a week in April. I'll be in a training class 4 days and he'll be on vacation. We're staying at 410 N. Dearborn, and my class is at 300 N. Wabash. We won't have a car, but are willing to travel around downtown, just not out to the burbs. We really like places that focus on local/seasonal food and support local farms. I can't handle anything spicy, while he loves spicy, expecially Mexican. We're looking to stay around $30/each for dinner and $10-$15/each for lunch, since Alinea is on the schedule.
Here's my plan:
Monday lunch - Goose Island Brewpub - Clybourn
Monday dinner - Sable (thanks nsxtasy!)
Tuesday lunch: ________
I need something near 300 N. Wabash.
He needs something fast/casual/healthy near the art museum.
Tuesday dinner - Cafe des Architectes - do you have to ask for the under $30 special?
Wednesday lunch _________- he needs something fast/casual/healthy near the museum of natural history.
Wednesday dinner - Pizzaria Uno / Pizzaria Due
Thursday lunch ___________ - he needs something fast/casual/healthy near the museum of science & industry
Thursday dinner #1 - ___________ - Need suggestions on where to grab something light before dinner #2 at Alinea at 9:30. We might go back to Sable, since there are plenty of choices and it's near the hotel. It's our first time at Alinea and I can't even describe how excited I am. I told my husband it is right up there with going to see U2 in concert. He's a huge U2 fan respectfully disagrees. It will be interesting to find out what he thinks after the dinner.
Friday lunch: Grahamwich. Friday snacks for the train: French Market or Fox & Obel
