First time in Chicago! Rec's for places to chow at....

SoCalStudent | Mar 15, 2006 05:27 PM


My friend moved here two months ago and so here I am visiting for the first time. =) I want to experience all the food that Chicago is famous, steaks, subs,...and more...

I did a little research and came up with the following list. Please tell me which ones to remove or add:

Pizza: Lou Malnati's and Gino's

Brunch: Cafe Spiaggia

Dessert: Sugar (Is there a strict dress code b/c all i brought were jeans?)

Dim sum: Happy Chef (She in particular wants to find a place comparable to the dim sum in the San Gabriel Valley in SoCal)

Hot dogs: (help?)

Steak: (help?)

Subs: Potbelly

Oh yes and I want to get some Garrett's popcorn too!

We are in Downtown but I think we may take public transportation most of the time though she does have a car.

Many thanks for your help!
