We will be going to see Wicked at the Ford in late January and I would love to find a good restaurant nearby or even a cool bar that serves some good food.

    Check out the Waffle House across the street - a full service diner and 50s classic.

          I would second Petterinos - we had dinnner there in the bar a few weeks ago - food and service were both great. Depending on the day and time, you may want to call (312-422-0150) ahead for reservations.

            One of my first choices would be Park Grill over at Millenium Park. Good food and a stunning view, it's within walking distance. I've gone to Cyrano's Bistrot after the theatre, SushiSamba is festive and fun and both are a short cab ride away. Boston Blackies is a good casual bar that has a variety of food, appetizers and sandwiches, reasonable prices. Probably a cab ride for them too depending on the weather.
