MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Need a place to recharge in between bouts of power shopping? This all-American gastropub, hidden in plain sight right off the Magnificent Mile, is just your spot. Sink in to one of their plush green velvet banquettes for a sip and a snack in this gorgeous space—dominated by an open kitchen with a mesmerizing flurry of activity. From its dark wood tables to the low lighting, this scene is definitely a luxe one, while the well-executed seafood treats flaunt a rustic sort of refinement. Fortify yourself with excellent small dishes such as shrimp toast or yellowfin tuna tartare. Pan-seared sea bass over a creamy butternut squash purée shows off a familiar flair, and if the banoffee pie is on offer, order it. After all, shopping is a serious calorie burn.
