Hi Hounders,

I will be visiting Chicago for 5 days in October and aim to explore Chicago through art, food, and local coffee shops. I've read over most of the threads here but with some many rec's, I've become disconnected. In keeping costs to a minimum, can anyone share a quick rec. list on "must eats", "dives", and "coffee shops" ? Is Uno or Giordano's the go-to for Deep Dish? Also, where is the most romantic spot for drinks, thinking with skyline view, Peninsula Hotel? Thanks very much for your feedback!
