Lunch in Chicago
The hubs, the son, his girlfriend and I are driving in from Indy on our way to Milwaukee and thought we'd do a quick trip into the city. Grab a bite for lunch and enjoy a little Segway Tour.
Being that we're subjecting our 22 year old travelmates to 12 hours in the car, we thought a fun afternoon in the windy city would be a welcome reward.
But where to eat lunch?
We need to be at Michigan and Jackson at 1:30. Is there someplace in the area that would be a good "taste of Chicago" for a moderate price?
Thanks for the advice. Looking forward to a fun-filled 4 hours before we hop back in the car!
Appreciate your help.

I think The Gage would work nicely for you. Depending on the weather, you may even be able to/want to snag one of their outdoor tables -- being across from Millennium Park, there's a lot of good people-watching available. The menu definitely picks up on the gastropub vibe that's big these days while still being moderate in price.
Terzo Piano might run a little more expensive, but you do get to dine on top of the Art Institute, so that's pretty cool, too. About a mile to the North of where you'd pick up your tour is the Purple Pig. Great food with strong meat-centric dishes while still nailing lighter, vegetable-centric dishes, too. I'm just not sure how much time you would have to eat given your scheduled tour (not to mention when you finally make it into the city).
