Options for dining out during your trip to Chicago

If your work takes to Chicago, Christine Muhlke, in the New York Times Style section, asks food and music experts where to eat and drink in the Windy City. Sam Prekop, of the Sea and Cake, offers this these suggestions:

Two of my favorite restaurants are on the same street blocks away from my home, but it’s certainly not the only reason I highly recommend these Mexican specialty outfits. Both of them do one thing, honed expertly. At Pollo Express (1315 West 18th Street; 312-829-1550), the chicken is grilled over coals and served with excellent beans and very fine guacamole (though somewhat hidden on the menu). And Carnitas Uruapan Restaurant (1725 West 18th Street; 312-226-2654) serves sublime pork tacos or platters of the same pork — that’s it — with great salsa and tortillas. Wildly cheap.
