Terzo Piano, located on the 3rd floor of the Modern Wing of the Art Institute of Chicago, is a must stop for lunch daily and Thursday dinner. It features the signature cuisine of Chef Tony Mantuano, who has been delighting Chicagoans for years at the four-star Italian restaurant, Spiaggia. The food is all fresh, local, organic and sustainably produced. In season, you may also dine al fresco on the covered piazza, while enjoying spectacular views of Millennium Park and the Chicago skyline.<br /><br /><br /><br />Terzo Piano is open to the public without requiring admission to the Art Institute.<br /><br /><br /><br />Guests may access the restaurant either via the Nichols Bridge which extends from Millennium Park and places you right at the restaurants entrance or off of the Monroe Drive entrance of Art Institute and take the elevator to the third floor

"I thought the menu was really bad for lunch this week. Too much fat, pork fat , bacon. I really had a hard time finding something to order. It is usually one of my favorites but I was really disappointed."

The Cavalier is an all-day London-inspired brasserie, located in the new Hotel Zetta.<br /><br />This is the third property for restaurateurs Anna Weinberg, James Nicholas & Chef Jennifer Puccio; the team behind Marlowe and Park Tavern. The team has collaborated with award winning San Francisco designer Ken Fulk, who has revamped the interior in deep leather banquettes, polished brass, zinc and white marble, giving it a posh and sultry feel.

"Had a wonderful brunch. The buttery eggs were really great as was the Belem custard. I highly recommend it. The decor is also contemporary and fun. It is in one of the hot neighborhoods in San Francisco!"

This James Beard Award winning restaurant with a clientele as diverse as San Francisco opened in 1979. A vibrant Parisian-style standing-only copper bar greets you as you enter on Rose Alley. Zuni's menu changes daily with dishes inspired by traditional Italian and French recipes. Nearly all of the produce, meat, and fish served at Zuni is farmed and harvested in a sustainable manner. Even without a reservation, bar tables are available on a first come, first served basis and the full menu is available. The bar also serves traditional cocktails made with top-shelf ingredients; refreshments at its best in an environment of effortless hospitality. Whether you dine early or prefer to dine after theater, Zuni is a welcoming haven. -Judy Rodgers, chef/co-owner -Gilbert Pilgram, co-owner

Food + Drink = Coppervine<br /> <br />Coppervine. A unique neighborhood restaurant focused on sharing and pairing.<br /><br />Inspired by comfort food favorites, where each menu item has met it’s match.<br /><br />Built for sharing, every item is paired to a wine, a beer and a cocktail – so let us guide you through your night, or feel free to create your own pairing (it might just show up on our menu a few days later!)<br /><br />The drink program was created by Beverage Director/Partner Don Sritong (owner of Just Grapes Wine Shop).<br /><br />The menu was created by Executive Chef Michael Taus (formerly of Zealous and Charlie Trotters).<br /><br />The sophisticated but warm interior was designed by famed designer Karen Herold of K Studio (formerly 555).

In the midst of Little Italy, Chez Joel creates the tastes and aromas of France. Featuring traditional favorites, Chef joel Kazouini offers his straightforward, expertly prepared Southern French cuisine. Chez Joel’s atmosphere is reminiscent of a true French bistro; its walls adorned with French posters and tables covered with butcher paper. The cozy environment makes Chez Joel the perfect spot for any romantic meal, and when weather permits, garden tables offer an open-air experience where you’ll find one of the most divine al fresco dining settings in the city.

"With so many new restaurants to try, I had not been to Chez Joel in several years. I went back on a snowy night and loved the warm, comfortable atmosphere, great service and great French cuisine. A good Cote du Rhone and lamb shank entree made for the perfect winter dinner!!!"
