Best restaurant near the Ford/Oriental theatre?

Where would you suggest getting dinner before a show at the Ford? We don't need anything extremely lavish; we just want good food. I considered Cafe Iberico, but isn't that quite a trek then to the theatre? (We'd like to be in walking distance, but I guess we don't have to be.) Thanks!

Edegenhard, these are my choices when I go to the theatre in that district:

Atwood Cafe (State/Madison);

Trattoria No. 10 (10 N. Dearborn);

Golden Budha (4 blocks west on Randolph near Franklin);

Aria, 200 N. Columbus (5 minute cab ride);

Russian Tea Time (on Adams 1/2 block west of the Art Institute); or

Catch 35 (35 W. Wacker).

Trattoria No. 10 has the special bar menu if you are going earlier on a weekday (drink minimum applicable). Golden Buddha and Russian Tea Time would be the least expensive.

I would add Petterino's (Randolph/Dearborn) and I second the recommendations for Atwood Cafe and Golden Buhda.

Don't limit yourself to the neighborhood adjacent to the theater. You can expand your horizon of good/better restaurants by traveling 5-10 minutes in a taxi to/from the theater.

You are a 5 minute cab ride from Greektown. I suggest Pegasus. You can read reviews on this forum, www.metromix.com and www.chicagoreader.com

I have heard great things about the Atwood Cafe. Is that anywhere near Marshall Field's? I'm from the 'burbs and not exactly sure where it is.

Thanks

The Atwood is across the street from Marshall Field's - on the SW corner of Washington/State.

A group of us will be attending a matinee at the Oriental - how about lunch suggestions within walking distance?
