Overnight Chicago trip

    Had amazing luck when I asked for NYC advice last year, so I'm back.

    It's worked out that I'm taking a quick trip to Chicago next week. Won't even be there 24 hours, but I think I'll have time to take the train from my hotel to Wrigley. I know, Wrigley in February. Empty of people, snowbound. Just wanna see it. Anyway, My question: Does the cuisine cognoscenti on here have any recommendations for food other than Chicago-style pizza? And, failing that, recommendations on where to go for Chicago-style pizza? I'm staying on E. Wacker across the street from the riverwalk.

    Thanks guys.

    Not sure how the food is, other than expensive, but the Signature Lounge in the Hancock Tower is a cool place to go for drinks. It's on the 95th and 96th floors, so if you make a reservation you can get all of the amazing views without waiting in a long line.

    The Signature Lounge® at the 96th – Specialty Cocktails

    I looked at the menu, and now I can't unsee this: Oven Roasted Pig Face.

    Goat legs available by pre-order.

    Billy Goat Tavern too touristy these days? I haven't been there in 25 years but it was good enough for Mike Royko.

    I didn't have anything pig or goat-related there.
