NYer coming for the weekend - please help

houston | Jun 15, 2010 05:16 AM

I did a bit of research on the boards and elsewhere and here is what I came up with so far. Please let me know suggestions/changes/etc. I have always been excited to come to Chicago for the food. Can't wait.

Friday - we get in late (about 9). Not sure what's still available for a quick bite. Thinking Chicago hot dog or Italian beef. Any recs on the way from O'Hare to the hotel (Westin - Michigan Ave)? Anything around the hotel? Doesn't have to be hot dog or beef, just don't want to make a huge to do.

Saturday -
-Need breakfast.
-Lunch we were thinking Hot Dougs or Lou Malnati's. Is Malnati's the best place to try Chicago Pizza? Never really had it other than Uno in NY (which I wasn't thrilled with).
Dinner - Heard so many great things about Gibson's I think we have to try it. Agree?

-Need breakfast, a market, or something.
-Lunch - Purple Pig? We may also go to the Sox/Cubs game at US Cellular. Anything good around there?
Dinner - Needs to be an early one. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance guys. The main point is that I want hot dogs, pizza and Italian beef because they all look awesome and are so different from what we get in NY. Please let me know. I look forward to getting this info!!!!!
