Open weekdays, The Ruin Daily is a sandwich shop and day bar that touts, "life is too short for sh*tty sandwiches." If you're taking a train or find yourself in this part of the western edge of the Loop, make a point to stop in the boozy deli for breakfast available all day, coffee, sandwiches, cocktails and snacks from dawn until dusk. A sandwich shop with a chef (Mario Manzini ) means house-made deli meats and interesting renditions of familiar favorites. Consider a Banh Meatball - beef n' basil meatballs, eanut hoisin sauce, pickled jalapeno, cilantro chutney, shredded sarrot on Italian baguette; steamy pastrami on rye; or an exceptional grilled cheese with Fontina, Swiss, Cheddar on Parmesan-crusted sourdough. Veg heads will go for a mushroom melt or Buffalo cauliflower sandwiches. There are house made seasonal sides, soup and salads plus great Happy Hour snacks in case you missed lunch completely.
- Lunch: "There's a rotating roster of boozy drinks served all day, including grab-and-go options for when you just can't face other human beings."
- Best for Lunch Because: Sizeable sandwiches with housemade deli meats, a day bar, breakfast for lunch, grab-and-go options and great coffee make for a perfect lunch hideout. .
