Dinner spot near Affinia Hotel for Friday night

Coming to town for a wedding. Have lunch reservations at Frontera Grill on Friday. Now we'd like to have a few places in mind for dinner close to the hotel (166 East Superior Street). We are very flexible -- not looking for a huge meal since lunch will be heartily enjoyed and we're meeting up with the wedding party around 9pm for drinks. All cuisines enjoyed. Please let me know if you have a recommendation. thanks

  1. C-House, Marcus Samuelsson's restaurant, is right in the Affinia itself. And Gino's East is right next door, for deep-dish pizza. Both are good, and obviously they are the closest.

    A few blocks away are several choices for lighter fare. Foodlife is the food court concept in Water Tower Place Coco Pazzo Cafe has moderately-priced Italian food.

      Am I right that Foodlife is an upscale food court? Looks interesting.

        Yes, that's correct. It's on the Mezzanine at Water Tower Place, a high-rise in which the first five floors are an indoor mall.
