Fodor's Expert Review 312 Chicago

$$ The Loop Italian

Part handy hotel restaurant, part Loop power diner, and all Italian down to its first-generation chef, Luca Corazzina, 312 Chicago earns its popularity with well-executed dishes that range from house-made pastas to branzino (Mediterranean sea bass) with cauliflower puree, Manila clams, zucchini, and sundried tomatoes. You'll be tempted to carbo-load on the house-baked bread alone, but make sure to save room for Italian-inspired desserts, including a spread of baci di dama (hazelnut cookies), biscotti, and cannoli. Note that upstairs tables are quieter.
