Eating while shopping in Chicago


I am going to be visiting Chicago for the first time and have reservations at some really great restaurants (Alinea, Blackbird). I'm going to be shopping during the day in the North Side, Magnificent Mile and Wicker Park areas of Chicago. Can anyone recommend some great bakeries/sandwich shops/gourmet grocers where I can pick up great coffee, baked goods and sandwiches? Fox&Obels is on my list...

Recipe ideas for Yuzu juice?

Loved the Yuzu accented dishes on a recent trip to Japan and was able to find some Yuzu juice at a Japanese grocery store in my city. Not sure what to do with it though. Any ideas?

City Bakery style chocolate chip cookies

I have tried several chocolate chip cookie recipes, and am a huge fan of the City Bakery chocolate chip cookies. I just baked up the NYTimes Jacques Torres chocolate chip cookie recipe and this is BY FAR the closest I have come to the CB cookies, and the most delicious! They are big, thick and chewy, and the sea salt sprinkled on top gives it an amazing crunch! This is my go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe now! I definitely recommend trying this recipe at least once - you will be hooked!
