Recommended Posts

Gonna be in Chicago overnight for work in a couple of days. Where should I eat for dinner? I'm going to be in the e wacker dr & n Michigan area (what part of town is that?). Preferably walking distance.

There have been many threads like this, but they all turned ugly.

 

Use the search function and you'll get some answers.

 

You'll be in the Downtown & Loop area. I've rarely went there, plus I have been been gone for 7 years, so I am no help here.

im not a native, but ive been several times... there is this ill bar restaurant called KUMA'S. Its heavy metal themed and the food was really good. No idea if its near where your staying, it seemed like it was in the "newly gentrified hipster district" that most former industrial city's have now.

near where you're staying, frontera is good as far as mexican food goes. fleming's is good for steaks and shit, but it's hella pricey.

 

if you're gonna be in around milwaukee ave, check bangers and lace, my good friend runs it and the food and beer selection is awesome. he also runs a place called the anthem that i haven't been to but it was voted best new wings in the city so it can't be all that bad.

I don't know what your price range is but Mastros Steak house is killer and only 5 min from there,

 

Morton's and Gibson's are also very good and close.

 

If you want some ridiculous views while you bang back a few $12 drinks, head to the Hancock Building,

 

take elevator to 96th floor to the Signature Room. Best view of the city, bar none (go at night).

 

Greek Town is right around the corner from there and there are tons of spots- Athena is very good.

 

If it warms up, the patio of the Cedar Hotel on State & Rush is pretty fun (young crowd in an older area).

 

If you're there over the weekend, let me know what you're looking to do and I'll try and point you

 

in the right direction.
