One night in Chicago

hello Chicago,
i will be on business and have one night stay in chicago. I've never been so i have absolutely no idea where to go for dinner and was wondering if anyone has any suggestions. i will be in the Wrigleyville neighborhood that night and will be cabbing it or public transportation from the airport hotel . i'm from california so i do not need to eat sushi or mexican i get plenty of that here. i'm also trying to stay away from american bistro type fare as i've been eating a lot of that lately. i'm thinking deep dish pizza? any other suggestions? thanks!!

  1. This topic discusses a lot of restaurants, including locations for pizza, in the vicinity of Wrigley Field (which is, of course, in you-know-where):

    Chicago-style deep-dish pizza is unique to Chicago, and I think it's worth considering for one night in town. (There are many, many other types of food here, too, of course.) Among the best places for Chicago-style deep-dish pizza are chains which have locations all over town, including Lakeview/Wrigleyville. They include Giordano's, Bacino's, and Edwardo's for double-crust stuffed pizza, and Lou Malnati's and Gino's East for single-crust pan pizza.
