Looking for good places for dinner very near this theater (i.e., ideally walking distance), which is at 929 West Belmont (zip code 60657). Open to range of prices, just want a great meal. Thanks.

      For a great meal, Mia Francesca wins, hands down. Reservations are a must. The noise level can sometimes be bothersome, but the food is always delicious. Just a little further east on Broadway is Joy's, a wonderful thai restaurant. It is BYOB, which is a nice bonus.

        Thanks for your suggestions. We really enjoyed Mia Francesca -- great bruschetta, calamari, pasta (penne with vodka sauce & salmon and pasta with mushrooms). Dessert was great too -- we had chocolate peanut butter torte and creme brulee, plus our kids liked the chocolate gelato and mango sorbet. Service was quick and friendly. They seated us in the upstairs dining room, so the noise wasn't a problem. Great value for the money.
