Pizza, Mex, Thai Questions based on Specific Locations

Will be based near Blue Line stop near N Milwaukee and W Division. Parties of interest will be at one of the W Hotels, N Lakeshore or W Adams(my apologies if my poor info makes this more difficult).
I am willing to walk fair distances and also will use public transportation.If something is super fantastic I will go somwhere towards the burbs but I would like to keep that to a reasonable minimum. Not, 30 min bus ride, plus walking, plus waiting, plus this, that and the other.In general would like to keep it closer(30min one way Max) to at least one of my stated locations.
The preference for take-out possibility applies to all.

1.Pizza-Would go for Deep Dish somewhere that I can get it to go.I have read about pre-ordering, waiting for seating, etc. I am not doing all that. SO, the best where I can pickup a pie within geographic constraints of the above.
2. Mexican and Thai choices that are at least among the best(if not the best).No upscale choices since that is a total waste,ie, no Rick Bayless unless he has something really good that is only marginally more than the other top choices.
3. Any bakeries/patisseries that are superior to Fox and Obel? Seems the latter gets the nod which does not inspire great confidence.
4. Where to buy good fruit/veg and maybe meat near my N Milwaukee and W Division location?

I hope that my questions are clear and if there is no good answer to something, I prefer no answer than best available yet still rubbish.
I really have no sense of the layout of the city since I have not been there in a dog's age but will figure it out on the fly with no problems if I receive the info I am asking for.
Oh, David Burke Primehouse for brunch is on the agenda. I have read good to better reports, any additional info will be taken into consideration.
Thank you in advance.
