Chicago is most definitely known for its food: deep dish pizza, Italian beef sandwiches and all-beef hot dogs with very specific condiments top the list. But really, the city’s many neighborhoods offer up most anything you’re looking for, from Spanakopita in Greektown to chicken feet in Chinatown and cannoli on Taylor Street.
Look for the Chicago Convention and Tourism Bureau’s counter in the General Registration area at McCormick Place when you arrive at the Midwinter Meeting. Representatives who know the city best will be on hand to help you make a dinner reservation and satisfy that craving that’s been building in your belly.
Not to spoil your appetite for dinner, but there will also be many dining options on site in the West Building. Grab something to eat between classes, and keep your strength up as your browse the aisles in the Exhibit Hall.
There are dining areas throughout our Midwinter Meeting campus: the West Food Court on the second floor; the Overlook Café in the Exhibit Hall; the CDS Restaurant, a huge area with plenty of seating on the third floor, opposite the General Registration area; and mobile carts scattered throughout the exhibit floor for a quick fix en route.
Choose from stir fry dishes with steamed bao, a build-your-own salad bar, pizza by the slice, handmade burritos, boneless rib sandwiches, and burgers (both beef and portobello) fresh from the grill. Grab-and-go items range from Cobb salads to hummus with chips, fresh fruits and sweet brownies. There are kosher and organic options on site, too.
Now, about lunch….
