Need suggestions near Grant Park (south)
We're staying at 11th Street & Michigan for 4 days. Looking for options within walking distance, since we'll be stuck in that area for work. Any cuisine, preferably casual.
Also, we will have 1 free day, plus Sunday before the flight out. For Sunday brunch, so far i've noted West Egg Cafe, Cafe des Architectes, and Feast. For the 1 free day, looking for options that are worth making a trip to if you were forced to narrow it down. any cuisine.
Here's a couple that you might want to search for more info:
Chicago Curry House
Manny's (bit of a walk, but worth it)
For brunch, Bongo Room and Yolk are both walking distance. You're probably right next door to Yolk.
I'd throw a couple more on the list. Down south I would add Custom House, Mercat a la Planxa (still closed?), Opera, Oysy.
Most of the suggestions to date have you going south or staying south. It isn't too difficult to walk north (The Gage, Rosebud Prime, etc.).
I ate at Feast and was not impressed. My salad had four ingredients besides dressing - spinach, roasted grapes, blue cheese and almonds. See photo. Long stems were left on the spinach, stems left on the grapes, and the blue cheese was in walnut-sized globs. Is it so hard to prepare food correctly? It tasted fine, after I removed stems and composed it so it was edible.
I also got a margherita pizza that had a tasteless crust that was covered in powdery flour. Really a disappointment.
