Eating Out In Chicago

Recommended Posts

Guys... I'm starving. I'm in Hyde Park for the fall studying at the U of C on an exchange (from the highly gluten-free-friendly Twin Cities) and at a total loss for where to eat. I can't find any tips on the blogs, boards, etc.

Any suggestions for on- and off-campus dining are very very much appreciated.

It seems like I read somewhere that Uno's now has a gluten free menu. The sad part is they don't have a gluten-free pizza. You may contact them to check it out and verify to see what's on their gluten-free menu.

I grew up in Hyde park although I've been away from there for 30 years. When I was back last year i noticed the coop had some gluten-free things although not much. There are a few stonefish restaurants in the burbs (Glenview & Skokie come to mind) which have gluten-free menus. Same outfit that owns Outback and Roys. Find my brother-in-law Stan Mishima at the co-op, usually the produce section, who may have an idea where to go. Back in the 60s on campus there were many more choices.

I think that's where I saw Da Luciano featured. It's in the West Suburbs, but the owners have 4 kids who have celiac, so they specialize in gluten-free - pastas, breads, the whole shebang. I'm a Minnesotan, too, but grew up in the Chicago area and hope to get there sometime when I'm down to visit.

The details:

Da Luciano

8343 W. Grand Ave., River Grove

are any of these places near O'Hare? I will be staying at the Hyatt O'Hare and won't have a car. I am going for a conference and am afraid I won't be able to eat (since the hotel is providing breakfast/lunch, which will of course be all glutenous foods!). :(

DaLuciano's is fairly close the O'Hare but you need a way to get there and back. Cabs are not plentiful in that area. The hotel might have a shuttle or something.

I know a place just north of the airport on Manheim called Cafe La Cave.........it's an "upscale" place that I know would accommodate cooking a dinner any way you like. But it's not cheap.........I don't know of anything else up that way, I'd bring some salad dressing and tuna or chicken in a pouch and order a plain salad somewhere.............Good Luck
