Wonderful birthday dinner

We had a fantastic meal! The produce is all fresh and local, and it definitely showed. Everything was an A+.

Staying at the Four Seasons in Chicago right now. This restaurant was terrific. I had the white asparagus gazpacho last night and am going back for lunch today to slurp it down again. I might have it for dinner tonight, as well. And maybe lunch again tomorrow before leaving Chicago. It's just crazy good.

I like this restaurant! The mood and decoration are very elegant. Pass through the hotel lobby, then we came to this restaurant. I love the dessert, it is really so cute and sweet. And the duck breast tastes very light, and mixed with some Cantonese cuisine flavour. Also the service is excellent, staff are all very nice. In general, this... More

We recently stayed at the Four Seasons on a long weekend which made this an easy stop for breakfast for us. The service was great and my kids were treated very well and respectfully. The food was excellent and prices were surprisingly reasonable. I would have like to have dinner here as well but I'll have to wait for our... More

Let me start by mentioning this is an unusual find, in that it is quiet and elegant, and also very comfortable. Sort of like a high class living room with great food! We had the distinctive cheese lavash bread to start, a sorta rich but delightful starter. Then we shared the brussels sprouts / apple salad, a very unique and... More

Very quiet evening (it's hot in Chicago and many people apparently chose to dine al fresco). Nice table by a window. We started with two straight up martinis which were shaken at the table - and shaken the way we like them: viciously. Generously sized. For dinner we chose a series of small plates. Our cheese lavosh came on its... More

These guys have a fantastic lighter breakfast menu. The food was fantastic and I didn't feel deprived. I wish I could find more breakfast menus like this when I'm out of town.

We arrived early, so the restaurant was fairly empty which really amplified the beauty of the high wooden walls, the intricate seating, and the lobby level skyview. The restaurant itself is quite beautiful and well worth it any trip to Chicago. We tried tuna tartare for the first time here as an appetizer – made with hearts of palm, Yuzu,... More

Staying in Magnificent Mile

Neighborhood 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.
