Wild card: Northeast Loop

Ponte Fresco, 225 N. Michigan Ave.; 312-861-0900, pontefrescousa.com Salad lovers are in heaven at this modern, eco-friendly salad and soup house, where you choose from dozens of toppings and dressings then watch it all tossed before your eyes. Rotating soups like spinach feta or spicy chicken enchilada are uniformly fab and the herb- and fruit-infused spa waters (try the cucumber) delight us each time. Depending on toppings, most salads cost less than $8 and soups are $3-$5.
