Restaurant under $30/plate for lunch in/around Palmer House

I have a meeting at the Willis Tower and I'm staying the night before at the Palmer House Hilton.  Before my meeting I'm going to take a buddy who lives in town to lunch.  Can you recommend the Lockwood Restaurant, Lobby Bar, Potter's Lounge, or something else VERY near by (easily walk-able)?  I'd like to keep it under $30/plate if possible.

Thanks in advance!

    The Gage is a good recommendation, a couple of others to consider are Russian Tea Time on Adams which is a classic Russian restaurant with wood paneling and Russian servers or Rosebud Theater District which is where I always go before shows at the Shubert Theater (renamed Bank of America) which is very close to the Palmer House. I tried Italian Village a few months back and am still not impressed. I haven't been to Atwood Café in quite a few years (too many places to eat!) but I love the space, its in the old Reliance Building that was designed by Daniel Burnham.

      Aw, it's always sad when a once cool spot gets renamed something like BoA! Good thing there's plenty of other awesome things to do in Chicago :) · (0 likelikes)

      I refuse to call most of them by their new names, the Sox still play at Comiskey (or Cominsky if you are a southsider and want to make the guy Polish instead of Irish), the Willis Tower will always be the Sears Tower (Sears is it's original name even if named for a corporation), Macy's will always be Marshall Field's · (0 likelikes)

    With your location in mind (the Loop is a dead zone for memorable food) I'd recommend The Gage. I've not been during lunch, but even a Monday for dinner is best with a res, so I recommend doing so for lunch just in case (Open Table). Gage Restaurant The Gage

    Hey Stephen- I recently worked in the loop for several years, and based on your criteria, my recommendation would be The Gage. It's a trendy, upscale pup with great food and atmosphere.

    The GageAs you can see on the map to the right, it's a close walk from the Palmer House Hilton. I would call for reservations just to be on the safe side.

    Have a great lunch and meeting in Chicago!

    We ended up at Atwood Café and really enjoyed it. The food and Lemonade was great, and we did spend a bit of time making digs at the hipsters that thought they were business people and the business people that thought they were hipsters. Overall, a great lunch. Thanks!
