Unlike so many good courts with chain restaurant options, this place has many great options available. We had excellent soups there, very reasonably priced, terrific flavor. A very affordable lunch in Chicago, which is why it's frequented by so many.

Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan
Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent
Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago
River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out
neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the
place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with
shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and
dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale.
