Some parts of Chicago are considered food deserts because of the lack of grocery and dining options nearby.
It’s fair to consider the immediate area of 235 Van Buren a food ocean.
For starters, there’s the South Loop Market on the first floor of this new high-rise condo at the edge of the Loop. This terrific convenience store stocks fresh bakery and makes a great sandwich.
Walk just 3 short blocks north or 3 short blocks east and you’ll find scores of restaurants, ranging from individually-owned and franchised fast food outlets to white tablecloth restaurants. You’ll find four Subways, four Dunkin Donuts, two McDonald’s and at least three Starbucks along your walk. If you’re missing a favorite, walk a block or two further and it’ll be there.
