Thanks. I actually did look into that one so I'm sure we'll go there but just wondering if anyone has any other suggestions as well. Mommabear?

Are you going to be in Downtown Chicago or in a specific area? Wrigelyville, Lincoln Park etc? The places below are nearby Water Tower place.
We live in Chicago so I can help you out as well. Downtown Bistro 110 is very very aware and is a nicer place to dine with the family. If you are looking for something more "fun" for the kids, the Rainforest Cafe, Pizzia Uno, the Rock and Roll McDonalds are nearby Michigan Ave. Rosebud's serves great Italian, there is a PF Changs nearby. I have never eaten at a PF Changs, but I have read here that they are very accommmodating to those with food allergies. The food court at Water Tower has a huge selection and we have been there a few times. The manager has come out and showed me which vendors to not eat at with my son (no brainer here...the Chinese and Thai to-go stations).
If you are staying in another area, post back and I can give you some more suggestions.

Not sure exactly where we are staying yet but we'll be visiting the museums (.e. the Field Museum because we HAVE to see "Sue"!)
Thanks for the suggestions!

The Field Museum has a McDonalds in it, so if this is in your comfort zone this would be an option for you. There is not too much near the museums other than what is offered inside.
When you get more info on the location of your hotel, post back and I can help you out.
