I know there's a whole foods or two there. (I had to go to Ft. Wayne, but my flight off of my stop in Chicago was cancelled and I had to drive from Chicago, stopping at the Whole Foods on the way, since Ft. Wayne didn't have one. I think there are two or three in the greater city area.)

I live in the Western Suburbs of Chicago and there are alot of places that sell gluten-free food. Trader Joes is my favorite, but there are Fruitful Yield Health Food Stores and Meijers carries a large variety of foods. Where in Chicago are you staying? Maybe I could help you a little better if I knew the location. Let me know.

Places I know of in Chicago with Gluten Free Sections on their menu:
-Wildfire Steakhouse (west on Erie or Superior?)
-Adobo Grill (at North Ave and Wells)- swouthwestern/spanish/mexican
-Vinci (just north of North Ave on Halsted)- Italian (awesome polenta!)

I have had lovely meals (after calling ahead, faxing info) at:
-Prairie (Dearborn and Conress)- 'midwestern' cuisine
-Bistro 110 (on Michigan Ave, across from Water tower place)

I have heard good things about:
-Joes Stone Crab (on Ontario, at Rush?)

Enjoy your trip!

P F. Chang's is another good restaurant in Chicago. I have also been happy with the choices in Thai restaurants. They have rice noodles and you can ask for meat, shrimp marinated in fish sauce instead of soy sauce. There is also a very good Vietnamese restuarant in downtown Chicago - To Pho on Wabash will prepare gluten-free meals. Again, ask them to use fish sauce instead of soy sauce.
