If I hadn't just walked off the street in Chicago i would have said i was in a charming french cafe in Marseille. Stepping in, there is a bright atmosphere with people eating together on pinewood tables. The food is complex and uses uncommon ingredients/ recipes. The deserts were second to none. Two downsides: It's very busy it took us... More

Located next to Peninsula hotel, had breakfast there twice. Excellent food, nice people, good service. FYI, for singles they offer seating at a small table or at communal tables of ~ 6 seats & have newspapers available, which is a nice touch. I sat at a communal table with another middle aged couple. The woman talked non stop about such... More

We had to return to the Pierrot Gourmet as it is one of the best breakfast spots in Chicago. We ordered the Quiche Lorraine which was very flavorful, cooked to perfection, and the crust was magnificent. We also ordered the Bananas Foster Waffle which was the best. The waffle consistency was spot on and the bananas were nice and fresh.... More

We found PG as a refuge from a Friday night gongshow at the Giorgano's bar area across the street before our reservation. the second night we returned because we loved the wine and the food so much.

Chocolate cake with ganache was very good. The chocolate eclair was amazing. Try the hot chocolate with pistachios. It has a unique flavor I've never tasted before - delicious!

This place is pretty amazing. Whatever the type of food, from the apetizer to the dessert, the taste is fabulous. I recommend the tarte flambee or the lemon tarte. Difficult to find a weakness in this restaurant. Outdoor seating is a must.

What a lovely place, wish I'd found it sooner. Bonus, they were celebrating Oktoberfest. Description as European country notary bistro is accurate. Sat outside, which was a bit noisy but still fun.

Staying in Magnificent Mile

Neighbourhood Profile
Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
