The Height of Elegance
Perched on top of the Chicago Stock Exchange, this French restaurant has some of the prettiest views of the city. And the food is just as good.
Its elegant ivory decor and formal polished silverware make this Michelin Star restaurant ideal for a celebratory meal or a glamorous holiday party. In the main dining room, you can choose between the four-course prix fixe dinner or the seven-course seasonal tasting menu. Both are completely over-the-top, but we find the four-course meal a little more manageable. They also have an impressive private room room which can accommodate groups larger than 20, with a comparable menu.
Their wine selection probably deserves a post of its own, but for brevity we’ll include the highlights here. They’ve received international attention for their collection of Alsacian wines, which Chef Joho believes perfectly compliment his food. However they do not discriminate in the slightest. Their cellar of over 1,600 wines holds many bottles from Bordeaux, the Rhône Valley, Burgundy, as well as domestically sourced Californian Cabernets, Oregon Pinot Noirs, and full-bodied reds from Washington State. Ask the sommelier for assistance in finding a wine within your price range.
