good restaurants near the Ford Theatre?

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.

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

    1. Atwood Cafe or Petterino's

      1. Search "Wicked" for lots of good recs.

        1. 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.

          1. 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.
