I would actually be doing delivery, so if location isn't as crucial, sounds like I'm better off with Sorrento's. Thanks for the help!

Does anyone have an opinion on Sorrento's vs. Rossini's pizza? I am from the Boston area and will be hosting a kid-friendly event at Drumlin in Lincoln. I hope to serve some pizza that will please my foodie friends and their children.

Boston hound visiting Chicago for first time--but I have just a few hours!

OK, it's my first trip to Chicago--but I only have a few hours to play with (in for a wedding and leaving the next morning)! I've read through the boards, but I have so little time that I have to ask for your help with my specifics. Thanks in advance!

Location--staying at the Hotel Monaco, since there's very little time to explore, closer to the hotel is better, but if venturing out is a must (cab, train?) to get to the best, I'd do it.

I am seeking your recommendations for the following:

--Friday night dinner: we fly into midway @ 8:20, will check into hotel and can then do dinner. It's late, but if we can get a late reservation, we'd be up for fine dining -- steakhouse, etc.

--Saturday breakfast: something on the cheap.

--Saturday lunch: cheap/mid--something all Chicago (deep dish, etc.) but definitely close to the hotel (we have a wedding there @ 1 PM)

--Saturday late night: any nearby spots for a great midnight snack post-wedding?

All suggestions are greatly appreciated!
