Seeking chow close to Hyatt Regency on E. Wacker
Staying in Chicago Sat-Wed. No car. Short on funds. Anything w/in walking distance of the hotel w good chow. Veggie options a plus. Would like to p/u a few groceries too (fruit/yogurt/cereal) for snacks b/c hotel prices on these items is rediculous. Is Fox and Obel nearby? Thanks.
Fox and Obel is within walking distance - it is about 3-4 blocks north of the Hyatt across the Chicago River -
Check out this thread for a good list of places nearby the Westin River North -which is just a few blocks west of your hotel -

Some students who were staying at the Hyatt Regency had a similar question in a previous topic; you may want to check out the discussion there, as many of the responses are along the same lines of what you are looking for (although a few of the recommendations are elsewhere around the city and not near the Hyatt). You'll find it at www.chowhound.com/topics/387291
Fox & Obel has a wee cafeteria at its east end which can be tasty and fairly-priced.
Sayat Nova, the Armenian hideaway on E. Ohio, is my favorite place for a lunch that tastes better than it costs.
Boston Blackie's on Grand has good cheeseburgers (and smelt) and a lively Chicsgo atmosphere.
L'Appetito Italian delis, one at the base of the John Hancock Building and one east of Michigan on... Pearson?
