Make your way to the famous Gino's East Pizzeria, located at 521 S Dearborn Street, in time for an 11:30 a.m. meet up with your foodie guide and small group of 12 people or fewer. Your first tasting is a classic Chicago deep dish pizza, the source of many rivalries with New York. Learn what makes a Chicago deep dish so special before heading over to another historic spot to taste the dipped Italian beef sandwich. You'll hear about the origins of this classic sandwich and its founding right here in Chicago.
Next up is a classic Chicago hot dog, topped with seven specific items, and never ketchup. Then, stop by a bar founded in 1898, which made it through Prohibition and Al Capone's bootlegging reign. See some examples of Chicago's famous public art, including a Picasso, a Miro, and a Chagall, before stopping for a salty sweet mystery 'secret food' beloved by Chicagoans.
Stroll through Millennium Park to see the famous Cloud Gate sculpture.
