Good inexpensive restaurants near Whitehall Hotel

Agree with jayh's comment on Amarit. Actually it is only 1 1/2 blocks west of the Whitehall - southeast corner of State and Delaware

Blue Agave (Mexican) is also good and cheap - just west of State/Rush on Maple

Replacement for Jia's (State and Delaware in Chicago)?

ELC515 - thanks for the info on Jia's re-opening. We heard spring of 2007.

We tried delivery from Shine Morida, Jia's sister restaurant. It was OK, but not as good as Jia. The menu is almost identical, but the food was not as flavorful. Garlic chicken equalled Jia's. Fried rice was a bit greasy, BBQ pork was salty. Also the food was a bit cold (a function of the delivery distance, no doubt).

Still, we probably will try it again unless someone can suggest another alternative.

Replacement for Jia's (State and Delaware in Chicago)?

Alas, Jia's at State and Delaware has closed as of Sept 30. Was our favorite for Chinese delivery for years. They are directing customers to a "sister" restaurant called Shine Morida. We'll try it this week and report back.

Meanwhile, does anyone have suggestions for a good Chinese restaurant near State and Delaware that has delivery service?

Indian Garden

We used to like Indian Gardens, but three consecutive visits with poor service (and one with cold food) turned us off to it. We now prefer India House -- equal if not better food, and excellent service.

Saloon Steakhouse?

Based on my experience, the Saloon is a better choice than Gibson's
