I'm going to be visiting the Chicago area for the first time in August for Lollapalooza. I'll be staying at the Holiday Inn Chicago Mart Plaza and going to the concert in Grant Park in the late afternoons/early evenings. We'll be staying from the 31st til the 4th.
Can you recommend any really good places to eat in the area(s)? My other half wants to go to one of the Rick Bayless places, and I wanted to go to Moto, but I'm not sure if we'll be able to do either, considering we'll be busy at night, and Moto especially sounds like the kind of place where you'd linger over the food.
We're open to just about anything, though my other half is allergic to fish/seafood. Any price from cheap to haute is cool, just as long is the food is good. I'd especially like recommendations for the best BBQ/pizza/burger places as well.
Thanks in advance!
