Just west of Chicago and Halsted there is a Thai place that is decent.

It's called Thalia or something like that.

Since I live in the West Loop there are a lot of good places.

You available to grab breakfast sometime before I head to the shop?

Jubilee Juice at Halsted/Randolph has great Turkey Burgers, fries, etc....really good food.

Go to De Cero at 814 W. Randolph...one of my favourite places for sponsors and out of towners. GREAT chips/guacomole. They serve tacos individually...Duck, Ahi Tuna, Skirt Steak, Catfish...awesome. Margaritas are great too but will get you messed up....great place. I've eaten her probably 75 times.

I really like Randolph Street because we can walk there with tons of choices...some more expensive than others. Here's some others that are all good that I've eaten at multiple times.... Vivo (Italian), Veerasway (Indian), Sushi Wabi (read title) Red Light (Thai & Other cuisine...get the Catfish...it's awesome and served minus the head in a sweet/sour sauce), Karen's Cooked (vegan), Marche' (ok food)

All of those restaurants are right next to each right off Halsted/Randolph.

I work in that building, there's nothing terribly convenient around there except Motel and Kitsch'n. If you're up for a little walk there's a Love's Chicago across the river at Chicago and Halsted. The Erie Cafe is pretty good for a sit down lunch. Bike parking is doable but you're going to be on the street. I'm a telecommuter most days a week so when I do come in I park in the lot across the river for $7 instead of the $10 at the lot across the street.

iguana cafe is a little bit south of you on halsted (just north of the grand/milwaukee intersection.)
they're open early for breakfast, have a good selection of sandwiches, wraps, and pasta,
plus they make the best crepes EVER.

definitely a super-chill, euro atmosphere. oh, and they serve alcohol,
in case you want to get sauced during your lunch hour. lol.

goddamn, i miss that place.

Tiparos on Clark, just south of North, has some solid Thai.

You can get a quick morning beer at Old Town Ale House, maybe take in the art. Open for Breakfast. You will like this bar.

I used to work in that building, Tony. That's a great space. I left right when Big Ten Network moved in. I wish there was more to do close by - it's a long walk to anything good outside of the building.

Motel Bar has Burger specials on Wednesdays.
Kitchen is expensive for the quality of the food.
@spot cafe is a bull-shit cafe with snotty employees
Mr Beef on Orleans is good.
Baba Palace is doable if you're in dire need of Paki/middle-eastern food (but sometimes they don't give you what you order, it's like a box of chocolate...)
Galeria Market has decent paninis. lots of office chicks go here for their salad bar.
Reza's down on Ontario is good but expensive for lunch
7/11 down by the park (kitty corner to Caribou) makes hot sandwiches for lunch that's not too expensive and is tasty.
I hear Big Ten office on 8th floor brings in food vendor every day and anyone in the bldg can go in there to buy food.
