  • Museum of Science and Industry

    5700 S Lake Shore Dr & E 57th St
    9:30AM-4PM daily; some days until 5:30PM, including most of summer; closed 25 Dec. $11, $5 child. No tour of Chicago's museums is complete without a visit to this one. Spend hours upon hours looking at really cool stuff you never even knew you didn't know about. So much to do, so little time. You can return for free the following day if you take your ticket to "Will Call" on the way out on your first day. Great for kids, with many hands-on exhibits and the famous Coal Mine; adults will enjoy the display of the German U-boat 'U-505'.

    CHANT

    1509 E 53rd St
    M noon-10PM, Tu-Th 11:30AM-midnight, F-Sa 11:30AM-1AM, Su 11AM-10PM. CHANT is a restaurant and bar, but skip the food and go straight to the bar. (The food is fine, but the service is not.) The decor is extraordinarily chic for Hyde Park, and there's live entertainment (often jazz) F Sa starting at 9:30PM.

  • Cove Lounge

    Cove Lounge

    1750 E 55th St
    M-F 10AM-2AM, Sa 11AM-3AM, Su 11AM-2AM. A loud, upbeat dive bar that's way more eclectic than whatever bars you've been to in the past. Its got a weird 70's nautical theme, interesting music on the jukebox, and cheap drinks. Unfortunately, it's also a tiny space and can get overcrowded.

  • Istria Cafe

    Istria Cafe

    1520 E 57th St
    Locally owned and operated, Istria Café is inspired by the coffee-rich tradition of the Istrian peninsula which is comprised of parts of what is now Italy, Croatia and Slovenia. Throughout history, the Istrian peninsula was devastated, destroyed and occupied by conquerors, but never completely, and never in spirit. Due to its turbulent history, a mixture of Italian, Slavic, Romanic and Germanic el

    Bar Louie

    5550 S South Shore Dr
    Su-Th 11AM-1AM, F-Sa 11AM-2AM. A chain bar & grill, with unexciting food, and very slow service, but... stiff mojitos, outdoor seating, and location right by the beach makes for a great time in the summer. That the clientele is very diverse is another plus.

  • Thai 55th

    1607 E 55th St
    Probably the least popular of the three Thai Row locations, but the best bet for pad see ew and bubble tea.

    1321 E 57th St
    M-Th 11AM-10PM, F Sa 11AM-11PM, Su 11AM-10PM. $8-15. Come here specifically for its famous stuffed spinach pizza and you won't regret it — well, you may regret the weight-gaining aftermath, but you won't regret the immediate experience.

  • Medici

    1327 E 57th St
    M-Th 11AM-11PM, F 11AM-midnight, Sa 9AM-midnight, Su 9AM-11PM. $8-18. An Italian place very popular with the students, that can lay claim to above average baked goods, fine thin-crust pizza, Italian dishes, and a fun ambiance in their downstairs seating area (a separate door to the west of the street-level bakery). Also serves excellent floats with flavors like almond and grenadine. If you ask the admissions office to recommend a nice place nearby to take your kid, they'll point you in this direction.

  • Sitdown Cafe

    1312 E 53rd St
    Su-Th 11AM-9:30PM, F Sa 11AM-10:30PM. $8-25. Italian cafe/sushi bar serving up eclectic menu of fresh sushi, sandwiches, soups, and salads. Standout dishes include, oddly enough, their thin crust pizzas ($7 plain!), edamame (boiled peas on the pod done right), and a few favorite rolls like Chicago Fire and crunchy crab. Loft-casual decor with outdoor seating and full bar.

  • La Petite Folie

    1504 E 55th St
    lunch: Tu-F 11:30AM-2PM, dinner seating: Tu-Su 5PM-8PM. $15-25. A very good, unpretentious French restaurant on the south end of the Lake Shore shopping center. The U of C alumnae who own the place apparently tired of scientific research and moved to France for a while to graduate with honors from the prestigious Cordon Bleu Paris school of gastronomy. And Hyde Park rejoices. Prix fixe menu available daily 5PM-6:30PM.

  • Snail Thai Cuisine

    1649 E 55th St
    Weird name, but this is the most popular and brightly lit of the three Thai places on Thai Row. Try the cashew chicken, the yellow curry tofu, and the eggrolls.

  • Pizza Capri

    1501 E 53rd St
    Good upscale Italian cuisine and stuffed pizza at a reliable Chicagoland chain. Try the gourmet ingredients like feta cheese and fine sausage on a stuffed pizza for a deliciously fattening night. Great bread.
