The massive outdoor patio with a close-up view of the city skyline is the main draw of this Greektown spot in the warmer months, but there are reasons to dine inside, too, such as creamy taramasalata (fish roe spread), charbroiled octopus and well-seasoned gyros. Opt for the dreamy galaktobouriko, lemon custard in honey-coated phyllo dough, for dessert.
Before a Blackhawks or Bulls game, you'll need to fuel up—cheering on the home team requires energy and a pregame drink will be much cheaper outside the United Center. Whether you're looking for a sports bar, a place for a quick craft beer or cocktail or a fast dinner, you'll find it at these restaurants.
