Mag Mile lunch secrets?

Bob S. | Sep 5, 200210:22 AM

I'm on the southern end of the strip, next to the Wrigley building and across from the Trib tower; my regular spots have become Max Orient or whatever the place is at the Nordstrom food court; the little deli next to McDonald's, tucked behind the Wrigley building; and, when I'm in the mood for a walk, the L'Appetito on Huron. I'll sporadically wander over to Fox & Obel to pick up some cheese and bread, too. And, of course, when I'm just dry of ideas and bored with everything else anyway, there's the Corner Bakery.

But still, for those of us who are stuck with grabbing something and bringing it back to eat at our desks, there must be more? Most of my coworkers commute from a distance and so bring their lunches, so they can leave a little earlier. So they're more familiar with sit-down places for group trips out, which isn't what I want.

Allergic to seafood, FWIW -- it's worth mentioning places that focus on that for others who may be interested, but sadly it isn't an option for me. I'm just looking for a couple new reliable sandwich places, really. (And I'd especially love to know where an edible burger can be bought and brought back. I work 9 stories above the Billy Goat, but I did say "edible.")
