We returned here this trip to Chicago and enjoyed a couple of nice meals in the Elephant & Castle. Service is quick and the food good.

Dropped in after walking around downtown. Nice atmosphere, decent brew selection, and varied menu. Staff was pleasant and attentive, even on a slow rainy day. Never did find out the etymology of the bar's name.

Good option for a traditional british pub feel while in Chicago. The fish and chips (haddock) are very good, as well as the chilli. Beer options are abundant and they have special on wines every wednesday. Service is prompt and cordial.

Delicious fish and chips, plus my first ever Stuffed Yorkshire Pudding – tasty! Service was above-average. If you sit outside, be prepared for the el to go by noisily, but it was worth it to us so we could people-watch on the 4th of July.

Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a
good starting point to sample the city's energy and
flavor. This central business district boasts
Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier
shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep
your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many
photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of
Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of
