Fodor's Review

Location trumps service at The Plaza, where a seat outside in summer, in full view of Millennium Park, is among the best in the city. The waitstaff is not always on top of things—grin and bear it with another drink from the outdoor bar. The menu includes small plates, soups and salads, and main courses, with a something-for-everyone selection. The burgers are first-rate, as is the more ambitious seasonal fare such as barbacoa tacos and pulled pork sliders. A grab-and-go window supplies park picnics. In winter, the restaurant shuts down to make way for the ice-skaters warming up in the rink right outside the picture windows.
