A Korean acquaintance and I are going to meet around Millennium Park, and then go to dinner around there and then possibly Ghirardelli's (the cafe one that's closer, which is just as good as the further one with supposedly faster service, right?). What would be a fun restaurant, preferably within walking distance of Millennium Park, where we could go that represents Chicago and is something she could tell her family and friends at home about? I've been having trouble finding a good selection myself.

Maybe go out for Chicago style pizza? This is close to where you will be.

The Gage is definitely not cheap, at least not in my book. The title of this thread has cheap as the very first word. I actually went there a few weeks ago before Hamilton. We were seated 45 minutes after our reservation so were were rather rushed. The problem seems to have been a table that sat forever. The employees at The Gage did do their best to make up for it. Service was very fast. I enjoyed my soup and the side of green beans I got. The other people I was with seemed to enjoy their food as well.

Oh, I actually didn't see the word cheap for some reason. Wow, that was Freudian. lol

I guess it's not super cheap but honestly I didn't pay the handful of times I was there so I guess I just didn't notice.

^^^agree that these two are good options. See attached (includes menu and hours)
Miller's Pub | 134 S. Wabash Avenue Chicago, IL 60603

A historic landmark (a short walk away from Miller's - 0.1 miles) The Cafe is self serve and a bit
less expensive vs the main dining room.

Also consider Italian Village. Classic joint about 4-5 blocks from Millenium Park that houses ~3 Italian restaurants (casual to formal).
