A friend and I stopped by Noodles and Co. before a show at the Harris Theater the other day and ordered some sandwiches to go because we were in a rush. The place was bustling but not filled to capacity and fortunately for us the line to order was very short and our sandwiches were ready in less than ten minutes. I go the meatball sandwich while my friend had the cheesesteak. Both of us liked our sandwiches as they were good and wrapped up nice. The size was enough to satisfy my hunger but the price tag was almost $20 for two sandwiches and pop, which I feel is kind of high. The employees were nice and friendly and the place looked clean, though, as I mentioned previously, we ordered to go. I'll definitely hit up Noodles and Co. again to maybe try some other stuff on their menu.

Great Meals for Kids

The kid dish at Nori is served lightning fast, which is a good thing because hungry kids don't care that good food often takes time. When the shortest distance between a happy child is a platter of food served in record time, The Shrimp and Vegetable Tempura (lightly battered shrimp, onion rings, zucchini, broccoli, sweet potatoes) is a finger-friendly food any hungry child can appreciate.

Served with a side of rice and tempura sauce, the Shrimp and Veggie Tempura is a perfect meal for hungry kids who can practice eating with chop sticks, or just dig in with their fingers or a fork. Top it off with a glass of soda, tea or water and your satisfied child is your result.

A New Chicago Classic

The Chicago Crunchy Crazy Signature Maki has great potential to become a true Chicago Classic. It has a complex texture and spicy flavor that is as original as the people in this City. It features Hamachi, Escolar, Unagi, Avocado, and Spicy Mayo, covered with Tempura Crumbs, Sweet Sauce, Red Tobiko, Black Tobiko and Masago. The meal is delicious and it is presented with a Shiso (mint leaf) to give it that Green that Chicago has become so famous for. Try this dish as dine-in, carry out or delivery.

This is one of my favorite steak houses in Chicago. I love the beef, and the spicy calamari appetizer is great. The atmosphere is great, and it is very appropriate for business meetings.

Just ate there last night with a friend. I really liked it. The service was great. My favorite was the Crunch roll. Also had a spider roll, edamame, spicy tuna. All good!

I love the freshness of Karyn's food. Everything tastes so fresh and good, and it is healthy too, which is an added bonus. I love the Buddha Bowl, and the Flautas are amazing. And don't forget to try to desserts!

I stop by this Little Caesar's on my way home from work a couple times a month and I like it. You can't beat a large pizza for $5 that's usually ready when you walk in.
The staff could be more peppy or friendly but they get the job done I guess. I've also noticed a trend of them putting too much sauce on the pizzas lately, which is not my preference, but it's not too hard to wipe off excess sauce. If you've never been to Little Caesar's before, I also recommend the crazy bread.

I am so upset that they closed Charlies and now it is Acre. We used to go to Charlies as a family quite often and the food was always good. I am not impressed with the new theme - I want my Charlies back!

I love Moto. This is one of my favorite restaurants in the city. My wife and I have been here a few times on our own, and have taken friends here to celebrate anniversaries and engagements. It is truly an eating experience, and lots of fun. You even get to eat the menu! The courses are very creative and whimsical, and unique. And the waitstaff are great.
