Fodor's Chicago 2014
A little French decadence never hurt anyone, so prepare to get the white-tablecloth treatment at this elegant French-American fine dining restaurant overlooking Millennium Park. Inspired by architect Louis Henri Sullivan, the spacious salon is accented with refined turn-of-the-20th-century European touches like seafoam-green silk drapes and crystal chandeliers. Indulge in opulent starters like raw oysters or smoked steak tartare before moving on to heartier classics like Dover sole with braised leek, salsify, and brown butter, and bouillabaisse packed with lobster, shrimp, clams, mussels, saffron broth, and rouille. Oenophiles will appreciate the exclusive and biodynamic wine list, with plenty of wines by the glass.

We've never been to Chicago other than changing planes.
We'd like to go for a few days but that's a lot of flying to spend 3-4 days in one place.
Any add-ons in the area?
Thanks. Read more
