    Kiki’s–went here for a nice lunch with work people sometime last year. It was pretty empty when I went, but the food was good (very typical french bistro food) and, from what I remember, the service was totally acceptable. they have a nice selection of sandwiches, though all are a bit pricey (for lunch).

    Hannah’s Bretzel–i was really excited about this place before I went, but wasn’t super happy with my experience mostly because I don’t eat ham and they have a lot of it. also–the sandwiches seem to sound better on paper than they actually are. but i do love all things pretzel bread.

    Ditto to Sydney’s entry on Hannah’s Bretzel. The establishment’s excellence is limited to its name; the sandwiches are really overpriced for what you get.

    Ooh, and I didn’t see Sura there. Go, try it and enjoy whole-heartedly, but don’t necessarily go back again and again.

    definitely go to m. henry’s. you won’t be disappointed. also, the most recent issue in gourmet has a whole article on latin american restaurants (most quite cheap) specifically on chicago. you should check it out! let me know if you want me to make you a copy and mail it.

    Oh my goodness – you all are completely wrong about Hannah’s Bretzel! It’s my favorite spot for sandwiches in the city. There are few things more delicious than Segio’s Special – imported french ham, brie, avocado, mango chutney and jalapenos on pretzel bread! I love this sandwich and it comes with almonds. I’m not sure what people have against imported ham, sliced to order, freshly baked pretzel bread and whole grain mini-baguettes and upscale cheese (not processed singles!)! Besides, if you don’t like ham, enjoy the watercress and cheddar sandwich on whole grain bread or roast turkey.

    Also, Marigold is overrated and Club Lago is gross.

    As I have already told you, def check out May St. Cafe. It’s delicous, but don’t plan on being anywhere soon afterwards. Let’s BOOB and set a date.
