Visiting Chicago in July

cbdurr | Jun 20, 200302:37 PM

I'll be in Chicago from July 19-28. We're staying in the River North area. We're looking to get some of our favorites from Italy (ribollita) and Mexico (barbacoa, gorditas, etc). What are the best places the concierge won't tell me about?

I hope you won't kick me out for a non-food question: should I bring/rent a bike or use public transportation? I'll be all over the city taking photos without a car during the day. (Hey, it's a legitimate question. I might be able to hit more authentic neighborhood places.)
