- Napolese Pizzeria: opposite of Chicago-style, Neapolitan-style pizza with a very thin, crispy crust.
- Punch Bowl Social: Good food and has an arcade/bowling alley/pool tables if you want to do non-Gencon games for a bit.
- PF Chang's: Prevalent chain, but since I saw you had Giordano's and the pasta places on there, I figured that's not an issue. This is usually my go-to when I want a decent sit-down meal right next to the ICC. A lot less crazy than Mikado.
If you are venturing further afield, I would recommend Rook (Filipino-fusion) or Kuma's Corner (Burgers).
Pearl Street Pizzeria
I work downtown so I get to most all of them at some point in time.
You should call Claddagh before making it one of your go-to spots; they never seem to know whether they want Gen-Con's business or not; like, sure, they decorate their building and are very welcoming, but they also sometimes have a cut-down menu almost devoid of Irish food (what is the point?) and I am not exaggerating when I say a good 50% of their seating cannot handle someone over 200 pounds... and, well. This is Gen-Con. I think 4 out of the 5 times we have gone there we have ended up having to move seats when we physically would not fit where they tried to put us first (and then, if they do not even have bangers and mash available, you better watch out)
Has anything replaced the Noodles and company?
Well that's a shame, it was nice to have a food quick food spot in that location for when shake & steak was crazy late at night.
Granted, as I said, they definitely do not do that every year, and I have no idea what they did last year since I did not go.
