Lunch, beer, and local THIS Thursday or Friday?

mdp01 | Jul 20, 2011 10:54 AM

Sorry for the late notice, but I would welcome suggestions for a lunch spot for my time in Chicago tomorrow and Friday. We're staying at the intersection of E. Illinois and N. Columbus and will be spending time at the Art Institute and possibly walking up to the Lincoln Park area, so the location could be anywhere near those things.

My traveling companions chose the two dinner locations (French bistro and Mexican), so I'm trying to put in a plug for a lunch place to get good beer (preferably with some local microbrew options) and light lunch fare (salads/sandwiches) I'd like to try out some new beers (whether local or not) and lunch might be my only option for a time to do that. I also like local food and farm-to-table kinds of places, but I realize it might be hard to find all of these things in one place in the right location.
