Everest does indeed have a nice view, but it's west out over the city. You can't see the lake from there, but the sprawl of the city with all its lights does look very pretty from the 40th floor.

Marilyn, of course, is right about the view from Everest. If I had read the description a little more carefully.....
I've always read that it has one of the nicest views in Chicago and just assumed it was of the lake. It's a little more expensive of a restaurant than I typically frequent.

BTW, cd, if you have any interest in seeing the Lion King while here, a new batch of tickets for 11/25/03-1/4/04 is going on sale today at 10 am and will likely be snapped up pretty quickly.

You can buy them on www.ticketmaster.com

We were there in July to see Lion King. Took our children and grandchildren. The opening is awesome! Thanks Kal for the review of Riva and Marilyn I would love to have dinner at Everest for the view and the food as I hear it is really good but the high prices keep me from it.

Although the price has gone up to, I think, $49/person (it used to be about $35), Everest does offer a 3 course pre-theater dinner at 5:30. While still expensive, it does offer a good value at this excellent restaurant. Plus, for now at least until the sun starts setting earlier, the western view will be great for sunset.

Alooohaaa and Happy Friday,
cd, no problem. Chicago has to be one of our favorite cities.

kristi,I guess that explains why Mrs Kal and I got into The W's bar?
No wait...they let us use the cool bathrooms and then leave.

Are you vacationing in Hawaii or do you live there?

cd-We "vacation" in No Calif. for around 49 weeks and then "live" on Kauai for around 3.
We just love the Kauaian spirit.

Anytime "life" get's too hectic here, I look at the pic taped to my monitor and the BP drops 20pts...and then I look at the pic of Mrs Kal and it goes UP 20 so it all kind of evens out.

Thanks for the early dinner price at Everest. Maybe for a special occasion we'll splurge.

cd, We always do.
We're cursed that way.
Not only am I thinking about Kauai, you have me thinking about a big ol' oyster platter and a few beers at Riva's while watching the world pass us by.
We'll compromise and go to New Orleans to hold us over till Kauai and then Chicago.
I hate when work gets in the way of a good life.

We'll be in New Orleans after Thanksgiving for a few days. Decided on a balcony room overlooking Boubon Street in order have a drink while watching all the crazies. Probably will have to watch, it'll be too noisy to sleep.
