Okay, so this isn’t some trendy little pseudo French bistro. It’s in a great neighborhood but a tad out of the way. It is small, dark with Christmas lights hung year round. The clientele tends to be on the senior citizen side and the owner/host...More

Just had another wonderful meal and evening at Le Petit Paris. We recommend it to anyone that wants a true French experience in downtown Chicago. We have never been disappointed.

Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy
Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of
restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities.
You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the
docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the
captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you
enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you
can also visit other popular attractions there such as
