Sandwich Place

“A Chicago classic! My family and I have been eating here for over 40 years. It’s the best Italian beef in town and you have to get it dipped with hot peppers. Note that the Taylor Street location only takes cash (ATM is onsite) and there’s a counter where you can stand and eat but no inside dining. There are a few tables outside in the summer. ”

French Restaurant

“If you are going to be visiting downtown Chicago, I recommend this place if you like French food. It is my very favorite French restaurant downtown (and I have been to most of them). Great atmosphere, and you can get street parking for around $4-5. They also have a valet for $7, but I've never needed it so far.”
