Hi, i'll be in Chicago for a few days on business. Staying at Ontario and Mich. Ave. Looking for suggestions, within say a 20-min walk or short cab ride on the following:
- anything quintessentially Chicago, I've done the deep dish and trophy steaks, where should I go for my first Italian Beef? Al's and Portillos seem to be nearby, but Portillos does not seem to be too well thought of
- Toronto has mediocre mexican at best, where should I go downtown that would be comfortable for a solo diner - would either Chilpancingo or Frontera fit the bill?
- is Boston Blackie worth a visit for a burger?
- open to any other suggestions - casual, particular to Chicago, and as I said OK for solo diners
