Re: Anyone know downtown Chicago?
I don't know my uptown from my downtown Chicago, but I've been to these places more than once.
For the best steak ever, The Chicago Chop House. Voted #1 in the nation. Go hungry, cuz it's big, and it's gooood!!!! Take someone with you. If you can't get a table, Cary's (the late Harry Cary) is good too.
Not too far away is Ditka's (sports bar). I didn't see much sports the last time because they had a live photoshoot of Playmates, yes...THOSE Playmates going on. I got a hug and an autographed poster. The hug was the best. Call first, because it's sure to be crowded.
I really don't know how close these will be to the Marriot, but it's definitely worth checking with the Concierge as soon as you get there.
Chitown has so much going for it, you really cannot go wrong.
