Lunch: Yes, the legendary Fontano's Subs is a chain with locations all over Chicagoland now, but you still can't beat this original Polk Street outpost, where it's worth waiting on the perpetually long line for mile-high subs stuffed with cured Italian meats and cheeses.
Dessert: The "Original" Ferrara Bakery hasn't changed much since it opened in 1908, which is just fine with the legions of passionate fans of their tiramisu and biscotti.
Culture: For a different kind of museum, baseball fans won't want to miss the National Italian American Sports Hall of Fame, aka shrine to Joe DiMaggio.
