Visting Chicago this weekend. Need help with suggestions.

I started a thread about " Monday night Football and where to go before and after the game to eat/drink". but after reading the boards I realized I need more advice.

We are arriving at 10am on Sunday, Oct 21. What are some good ideas for lunch and dinner.
We want to experience Chicago's favorite foods. I have read that Pizzeria Uno is best for Pizza. Portillo's for hotdogs...unless there is a better place to experience a "true Chicago hotdog"

Monday...Bongo for breakfast. We will do some sightseeing during the day so we need ideas for lunch. We are going to the football game at night so need ideas for dinner before and drinks/food after.

Tuesday we have the entire day. Our flight doesn't leave till 9pm so we have all day for sightseeing and eating. I need breakfast, lunch and dinner ideas

I also love lattes, cappuccinos, and pastries. So what are some of the best coffee shops and where is the best to buy pastries...I love sweets!

We are staying at the Wyndham Blake . The hotel is two blocks to the train but if there is a "not to be missed" place to eat., we do not mind walking or a taxi.

I don't have an itinerary yet, but I do know that the Navy pier, Willis tower, Millennium Cloud Gate, and tour of Wrigley field are places we want to see.

Thanks for any suggestions you can give us.
