I'm coming to town this Monday - Wednesday, will be working in the 'burbs but staying downtown (Radisson). I'll have a car, but I think would rather prefer to ditch the car once the work day is done and eat somewhere near the hotel.
I'm looking for a place that's comfortable for a solo diner, perhaps for dining at the bar. Not limited to any cuisine. Nothing high-end/upscale though. Bistro-type or wine-bar fare sounds appealing, and I've seen mention of Bistro 110 and Bin 36 on the board.
Also, I believe Chicago is strong in the Eastern European department which I would love to explore. Anything of the sort that would fit my solo/casual criteria?
Thanks for the help.
