One more question about eating in Chicago with a group of 40 high schoolers: We will be traveling from Midway on a chartered bus on Saturday around noon and are looking for an interesting place for lunch. Our headmaster doesn't want to eat at the museum but is hoping for a fun first meal in the city that is not too far off our route. What do you guys think about Chinatown? Is it relatively close? Ideas about good restaurants that could handle a large group?
I appreciate everyone's help-your assistance is invaluable. You will be glad to hear that in our planning meetings I often say "my friends from chowhound have suggested" this restaurant or that.
