Is it cheesy to dine at a brand extension of a popular backyard grill? Okay, maybe a little, but get over yourself and look for the red kettle cooker outside Weber Grill, where restaurant-size versions of the namesake appliance demonstrate their versatility. Suburban Chicago–based Weber takes on the range of grill cookery at this River North restaurant, offering burgers, ribs, steaks, chops, veggie sides, and novelties like "beer-can chicken" on the extensive menu. Adjacent
to the Hilton Garden Inn, the restaurant also serves standard breakfast fare. Spacious booths line the State Street windows and make for the best views of Chicago foot traffic.
