While touring the city we decided to give Medici on 57th a try and ended up having a great lunch with my family. I enjoyed a pizza while my daughter had the pasta (chicken Alfredo). I would definitely recommend if you are in the area.

This place near the university of Chicago campus is a great lunch spot. The burgers are awesome but they have a fairly extensive menu. I chose a burger and loved it . Nice service and a pretty cool atmosphere as well.

We always go to The Med when visiting my daughter or sopping her at college. They have a great selection of pizza and sandwiches along with milkshakes. The is a great spot to get a feeling for U Chicago
