Toronto hound looking for downtown rec's

munch | Jan 21, 2006 10:44 AM

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
