Nothing but the best Tim. ;)
China Chef in downtown is good. Connie's is still the best deep dish if you don't want to drive. Rosati's, well done for a thin crust that is right across street from hotel. Also close to the hotel is Pappadeux, which is a cajun type restaurant. Awesome food! Siam kitchen on Ogden for Thai. Drive about 3 miles down Ogden for a combo at Scooby's Red Hots in Downers Grove. Taco Express in downtown is also good quick eating. Uncle Bub's has awesome food as well. Just had some outstanding jambalaya there last night.
Beer/wine at the Jewel at Cass and Ogden.
I think those are all my haunts locally.
