Went out specifically looking for this building, and didn't realize that the place we had just purchased chocolate from was it. There's no exhibit to view inside. You can just walk past it on your downtown travels is enough.

The food in the restaurant was really disappointing and overpriced. The Maitre d' tried shuffling us (unsuccessfully) to a side room away from the main restaurant, and to be honest, I wished we hadn't stayed to eat. The building itself is stunning and worth visiting.
