Revival Food Hall! Tons of great options there. Cool vibes.
I highly recommend the Truffle BLT from Fat Shallot.

Agreed with others, for counter service Revival Food Hall is great and there are a variety of different counters for different appetites. It does get crowded around lunchtime. French Market underneath Ogilvie is similar and may be less crowded, but it's not as cool of a vibe.

If you don't mind a bit of a walk west, Randolph street in the west loop is also excellent. You really can't go wrong with anything in Fulton Market or directly on Randolph. I'd recommend Little Goat Diner, JP Grazianos for sandwiches, and Green Street Smoked Meats for BBQ. Au Cheval and Publican Meats are also staples in that area.

Depends what you're looking for! Do you want table service or something fancy? Or is counter service ok? I agree with Jaclyn about Revival Food Hall - it's counter service and tons of really great options from some of the best restaurants in the city, but it's also only open during the week. I recommend Aloha Poke at Revival.

If you want a good place where you'll be waited on, I recommend River Roast - great views of the city and really good meat, fish, and charcuterie.
