Glad that Hugh's Room has reopened with great music. But the food has definitely gone downhill. We had the Caesar salad which was o.k., but the "Winter" salad was really boring...just a small pile of baby kale over some carrots. Too expensive at $10. We...More

A recent performance by famed Chicago-based jazz pianist Patricia Barber was somewhat marred by poor service, and a horribly slow kitchen. Although that isn't the end of the world, and the food was decent for the most part, the portions were "smallish" and it took...More

attracts artists, designers, and fashion industry
professionals to its living quarters. It is in the
