Visiting Hound Seeks Transporting, Life-Changing Must-Eats

C. Simon | Mar 19, 2005 07:02 AM

I will be in Chicago for two days next weekend. I have scoured these boards, but, as often is the case when planning a chow tour, I am paralyzed by indecision. I want bites of food that are going to stun me with their excellence. I want food that I will have a hard time finding in Boston and Washington, D.C..

For one, I am going to do a quick hot dog / Italain Beef tour. Three stops, I think, unless you all persuade me otherwise:

Hot Dougs

Also, late night I imagine we'll wind up at Wiener's Circle.

I am a beer geek, so will be putting in some hours at The Map Room, too.

But, I am in need of more chow options. Most importantly, the Friday night I arrive. That will probably be the on meal that we have as a single sit-down meal. So, it is allowed to be nicer, but does not have to be. Where MUST I go? Polish? Latin?

On a brief previous trip to Chicago, all I had time for was Frontera Grill, which I thoroughly enjoyed.
