Stopped in one evening to this attractive restaurant just off the main drag in Chicago. The food is Italian-inspired and a kind welcome and great service. Prices were actually really good and we enjoyed wild salmon and risotto with a glass of wine. The diner...More

Downtown / The Loop

good starting point to sample the city's energy and
flavor. This central business district boasts
Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier
