Visiting Chicago this summer - where to eat???

pâté chinois | May 23, 2008 12:47 PM

I'm very excited that I will spend a little under one week in Chicago in July (just after Taste of Chicago), and I want to try as many Chicago specialties as possible.

I do not not yet at which hotel we'll be staying, but it will be downtown.

Can you recommend places for breakfast, inexpensive lunches, Chicago-only specialties (I do know about deep-dish pizza, but since I've never been in Chicago, I'd like to know where I can get the best), and a few nicer places too (can't afford alinea, alas).

Thanks a lot for you help, and I'll report back when we return!
