I land at Chicago Midway at 4:15 and need to be on a train to Milwaukee at 8:05 (from Union Station). My research leads me to believe that there is no great food in the immediate vicinity of Union Station, so I'd like to head to Greektown to get dinner before the train. So. How do I get from Midway to Greektown to Union Station, minimizing cost and schlepping a suitcase, a carry-on, and a purse?
I'm guessing I should take the El downtown and then cab it to Greektown. Does that sound good? What station should I get off at, to maximize my chances of getting a cab at 5:15 or so?
What street is best to hail a cab to get back to Union Station from Greektown?
Thanks in advance!
