One of the best restaurants in Chicago, in the heart of the Mag Mile. Nestled at the base of the legendary Tribune Tower, this stunning restaurant is a vibrant addition to one of Chicago’s most beloved and recognizable skyscrapers. Incorporating signature Tribune elements into our design, such as the etched travertine that came over from Italy, Howells & Hood pays homage to John Howells & Raymond Hood, architects of the Neo Gothic landmark. With a unique and refined culinary program, the largest draft beer selection in Chicago, and impressive staff, Howells & Hood is a magnificent compliment to Michigan Avenue.<br /><br />Please note, we do not accept reservations for our patio tables. We will do our best to accommodate outdoor seating requests upon arrival. We look forward to serving you!

"Overall I was very disappointed with Howells and Hood. My boyfriend and I went for brunch last Sunday and I was far from impressed. I do not recommend the buffet. The food was barely refreshed and the overall taste awful. I will check this place out for lunch or happy hour again but I will not be back for brunch. I was sad because I was looking forward to it."

"We had the pleasure on enjoying Nia this past Saturday and were delighted to find out they were part of restaurant week. One of the best RW menus I have scene. 8 tapas courses for $33 was insane. Everything was perfect for sharing and we were able to try a nice variety. The lamb meatballs were delicious. I will definitely be back, restaurant week or not ."

FORK in Lincoln Square offers contemporary American cuisine. We have 30 wines by the glass & flight & 150 Craft Beers. Wine flights, Beer Flights, Cheese Flights, comfortable booths and a modern but cozy atmosphere make this new restaurant a great place for a quiet dinner, or just a few drinks after the show.

"Overall Fork was okay. Not great but not bad. The food was nicely coursed out, however 4 course for 2 people should not take 3 hours. Also, our plates or silverware were not changed once during any of the course transitions, including dessert. I did the wine pairing and my boyfriend did the beer pairing. At no point were the beverages described to us, while I understand NYE is always a bit of a mess, I just expected a bit more. The female bartender and the host staff were very friendly and helpful. I am willing to give them another chance."
