Chicago Cultural Center, etc.

I'm planning a trip to the CCC and 'the bean' for its sound/light performance on Fri. eve. I'm looking to get some vittles beforehand.

Somebody jump start my brain--what's the restaurant, probably on Mich. Ave., that has a cheap 'happy hour' like food offering in the mid afternoon? I seem to recall $5.00 apps for limited hours. I looked at The Gage and Mercat, but there is no obvious link there (but I still think it may be Mercat.)

  1. Bodega No. 5 is Mercat's cheap and casual spot (and the one you're thinking of).

      That's it! Thanks so much.

      It seems odd that it's not mentioned on the Mercat web page, nor does it have its own web presence.
