Fun to come back here as a regular Chicagoan for the beautiful views you never tire of. Not a fan of all the food, but best bets are the raw platters with oyster and lobster, fois gras and pâté (off menu) and scallops. And wine.

The terrace has a stunning view and the prix fixe dinner is a very, very special night out.
Table-top taps make this a great pick for group outings. The burger is expensive but worth every penny.

Super swank spot with inflated prices to match. Gripes aside, you can't top the view.

Nacional 27 is one of my favorite LEYE restaurants with great cocktails and pretty darn authentic South American food.

Oprah, Rahm Emanuel, Barack Obama and every other Chicago celeb (and wannabe) works out here. Too frou frou for me - when I work out, I want to work out, not put on makeup. But…

Pepper Canister is a divey dive. I still remember the days when you walked in the doors and into a cloud of smoke. Thank goodness those days are behind us, and now we can just…
