Asian nachos, small plates, desserts, drinks. It's all good, and its always busy.
The diverse menu has options for all.

Did a lunch here. Haven't been back for about 10 years when we just had one kid. Now with 4 it was kid friendly. Food was good. Not spectacular but exactly what you expect from them (just like the Factory). I did the Kobe meatballs and was great for a small lunch. Wife did a salad and she liked it too (but it is still salad). Kids of course liked the food right off the kids menu. Portions for them was little much for small kids. Good eats. Safe bet all the time.

This menu is huge and it is a very convenient place to stop and eat while shopping. There is something for everyone and they do a great job putting a unique spin on everyday items. It is a pretty restaurant with a great view overlooking the Mag Mile.

Our party of three ate here on the weekend and absolutely loved the atmosphere. The decor is very grand, yet casual at the same time. We enjoyed three different appetizers rather then eating entres as we were pretty full from a culinary tour we went on earlier in the day. All three appetizers were delicious. As a desert we ordered the beignets. Note: these must be ordered at the time you put in your main food order as they take time to prepare. Also don't try to go at these alone. There were at least 7 or 8 donuts in the basket and would have easily fed four or five people. We even shared with the table beside us! They were melt in your mouth good. I dare say even as good as the ones I had in New Orleans!

Went here with friends while staying in Chicago, went back twice more before leaving. Huge menu, well prepared food, great service and a terrific atmosphere, people are lined up out the door waiting for a table even though the restaurant is huge. Very good value for money, don't miss it, it is better than the Grand Lux in Las Vegas
