Pierrot Gourmet Review
Despite the legions of shoppers on Michigan Avenue, there are few casual cafés to quell their collective hunger, making this bakery-patisserie-café a welcome neighbor. Lunches center on upscale greens like herb salad with olives and Parmesan, along with open-face tartine sandwiches on crusty, house-made sourdough. Break mid-afternoon for a tarte flambé—an Alsatian flatbread with bacon and onions—accompanied by a glass of Riesling. Solo diners are accommodated at the magazine-strewn communal table. Meals are served all day long. The upscale Peninsula Hotel runs Pierrot, accounting for both the high quality and the high cost.
