By virtue of being an epicenter of office buildings, hotels and many of the city's top tourist attractions, the Loop is home to a multitude of grab-and-go lunch spots and crowd-pleasing formal dinner destinations. But take a closer look and you'll find so much more: post-theater romps, unsung brunches and some seriously awesome food halls. Despite popular belief, the Loop doesn't shut down at 5pm sharp, so stop sleeping on this 'hood. When your stomach starts to rumble in the Loop, book it to one of these fantastic restaurants.
