1007 N. Cass St.
New chef, new menu! The wonderful Art Deco diner, tucked inside the Plaza Hotel, serves breakfast all day along with soup, salads, burgers and sandwiches. The courtyard in back provides the ultimate in outdoor, urban dining during the summer. (J.B.) FF. SB. OD. 272-0515.
Miss Katie's Diner
1900 W. Clybourn Ave.
Miss Katie's is in the mold of a classic '50s diner. It opens for breakfast and makes a reliable omelet. Lunch and dinner offer more substantial fare. The blue plate specials include diner classics like meat loaf and roast turkey. Dinner gets a bit more fancy with BBQ ribs and Sicilian tenderloin. The thin-cut onion rings are always good. Save room for a milk shake or a malt. (J.B.) FF. SB. RS. Handicap access. 344-0044.
