Default Good pastry bakery in Chicago.

It's almost time for my annual, when I can get tickets, trip to see the Chicago Bears in a home game. One year, we found a great pastry bakery in Chinatown and then the next year it had been closed by the health department. None of the other ones in Chinatown had eclairs like the closed down place. So, now I need to find another bakery. We're staying one blook from Michigan Ave. on Ohio and have access to the CTA busses and trains. Anyone know of a decent place close to the CTA lines?

I haven't been to a bakery in the city for years, so I have no idea what to recommend. You can try looking at the LTH forum so see what the folks there recommend. Bill may have some thoughts, too.
