We dined at the Great Restaurant Bar and Grill before heading out to the theater midweek of Thanksgiving. We let our waiter know what our time frame was, and he made sure our food was enjoyably paced so we could enjoy our meal without worrying about making it to the theater on time.
Although the menu is not extensive, the food we had was very good. We'd eaten an appetizer in the Nuvo Bar so we went straight to the list of entrees. My husband had the Beer Braised Short Ribs. They were fork tender and came with a very nice port wine sauce, garlic mashed potatoes, and a few spears of sauteed broccoli. I had the Day Boat Scallops which were served with a fabulous saffron risotto and a small watercress salad. The portion size of both dinners was quite large- enough for much healthier appetites than ours. I believe my dinner came with six large scallops and my husband had two short ribs that would have satisfied Fred Flinstone. My saffron risotto was as good as any I've ever tasted and the scallops were perfectly cooked. We each enjoyed a glass of wine with dinner and liked the fact that our waiter could offer suggestions regarding pairings with our food. We also enjoyed being able to look out over Wacker Drive, watch the folks scurrying by and hear each other as we talked over dinner. Lovely, very, very lovely!
