Visiting Chicago - which hood is best for food?

mms | Apr 2, 2007 10:41 AM

I'm visiting Chicago this summer, from NYC, and need advice on restaurants and neighborhoods. I live in Williamsburg Brooklyn, and am scouting areas in Chicago I may want to move to. I found Lincoln Park to be a little too preppy. I like Wicker Park...but found it a tad young and grungy. What other neighborhoods are offering artsy culture and great restaurants? Somebody said River West? Also -- if you can recommend a decent hotel, around $100/$150/night that's accessible to a good neighborhood (I don't care about staying on Michigan Ave), that would be great!!
