    Default Good places to eat in Chicago?

    Specifically downtown? In the middle-ish by the water?

    Edit: PM's are acceptable, too.

    The Berghoff, though I'm not sure how close that is to teh water. Klay Oven if you like Inidan food. Yum!

    It's been a couple of years since i've hung out there much though - you could check out Yelp Chicago for newer reviews. You can see how close they are to where you'll be too.

    A friend that's a chef in Chicago recommended a few places that are reasonably priced:

    http://www.loumalnatis.com/ if you're looking for good pizza.

    http://www.hub51chicago.com/ is allegedly some great food.

    http://www.quartinochicago.com/ Italian food.

    http://www.hillstone.com/#/restaurants/bandera/ Bandera is supposed to be really good too, one of her favorite places in the area.

    I love Pizzeria Uno. I'm not a fan of deep dish per se, but this is deep dish the way it was meant to be, and it's amazing.

    I can't remember anymore, it's been too long since I've been home You really can't go wrong with any pizzeria there..or hotdog place come to think of it. I dunno, downtown is too much for me, I prefer the little restaurants you find on the outskirts like Lincoln Park. I need to go home asap.

    (EDIT: All of this.)
    I had this chain right by my house and there'd be lines and lines of people but I never really got the appeal. I guess it's your typical Chicago food but I dunno, I never really liked it that much. If you find a place called Babes Hot Dogs, you MUST eat there. MUST.
