Whenever the spirit hits us to have French cuisine in Chicago, this is our spot. It is truly a hidden gem tucked on the first floor of a condo. The food is always excellent, the drinks - perfect, and the venue is French for sure....More

Le Petit Paris is tucked into the south end of the main floor of a Chicago high-rise east of Michigan Avenue near the lake. The owner Alain Sitbon is also the chef. He has been in Chicago over 35 years, but distinctively French. Le Petit...More

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
