Last minute Chicago trip

QT | Sep 14, 200503:00 PM

Just found out I will be in Chicago Thursday afternoon through Saturday afternoon - possibly evening. I will be there on a business function, staying at the Westin Michigan Avenue. Never been to your fair city so I am looking forward to it.

Most of our meals will be sponsored by the Westin - don't know if that is good or bad thing, and I am happy to slip out. I would like recs for the following -

Quick breakfasts Friday & Saturday

Thursday Dinner - I live in Madison, WI and I am Italian and I need a good Italian food infusion if possible. Won't be dining alone and doesn't have to break the bank - I love hole in the wall places.

Friday fast lunch - I will probably go out of the hotel if it is worth it and close

Friday night dinner and Saturday lunch

Also, any non-corporate style bars in the area would be nice - I love a good pub.

Thank you in advance and sorry for the short notice. I have used this website so many times in my travels - the chowhounders haven't failed me yet!
