Thanks. Anyone have recommendation for good eats on a Saturday evening within walking distance or a short cab ride from The Allegro Hotel? Thanks - Neil

    Neil - You might want to give us some guidance in terms of types of cuisine, ambiance, and/or price point. There are probably over 100 good restaurants within walking distance or a 5 minute cab ride of the Allegro.

      Yup - well put. The yellow pages show 1,498 restaurants within two miles of the Allegro, and that includes the biggest concentration of restaurants in the city, with everything from fine dining to cheap eats to ethnic to fast food etc.

      Here are some that I'd recommend just within roughly a five-minute walk of the Allegro:

      Giordano's ("stuffed" deep-dish pizza) - www.giordanos.com (310 W. Randolph location)
      Petterino's (steakhouse) - www.petterinos.com
      Trattoria No. 10 (Italian) - www.trattoria10.com
      Fulton's on the River (seafood) - www.levyrestaurants.com
      Atwood Cafe (contemporary American) - www.atwoodcafe.com
      Vivere (Italian) - www.vivere-chicago.com
      Catch 35 (seafood) - www.catch35.com
      Bin 36 (wine bar) - www.bin36.com
      Aigre Doux (contemporary American) - www.aigredouxchicago.com
