Not many of these old shopping palaces are left in the USA and few of those have retained their formal dining rooms. The food is good and the surroundings can transport you back to a time when shopping was an event you enjoyed, not just...More

I went here as a child and it was the same except missing some potted ferns. My pot pie was the best I've ever had and my friend's salad looked tempting. The menu is a kind of time capsule of a time gone by. The...More

So many wonderful choices on the menu it was hard to decided. My meal was exquisite and my friends enjoyed theirs. Service was terrific. The atmosphere is lovely. The prices are not out of line either.

I had lunch here with family. The food and the service were very good. We enjoyed ourselves. The prices were very reasonable! That said...the space is large and felt like a ghost town. It needs to be full of people. It was far from that...More

Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a
good starting point to sample the city's energy and
flavor. This central business district boasts
Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier
shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep
your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many
photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of
Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of
