Tasty nearby stops
Zapatista A lineup of regional Mexican dishes gives diners a mini tour of Mexico in the South Loop. 1307 S Wabash Ave (312-435-1307).
Lao Sze Chuan Another outpost of this Szechuanese restaurant recently opened near the Red Line in Uptown, but the original is just as good (and maybe better). You can’t go wrong with the mapo tofu. 2172 S Archer Ave (312-326-5040).
