MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View
This contemporary dining room shares its home—a landmark Mies van der Rohe tower completed in 1972—with The Langham Hotel. Floor-to-ceiling windows on the second-floor space offer views of Marina City, but with its stunning kitchen displayed behind gradient glass panels, the scene inside is equally dramatic. Creative add-ins bring Mediterranean flair and flavor to flawlessly executed and gorgeously composed dishes. Seared octopus and intensely flavorful pork belly dazzle with lashes of squid ink and dots of kewpie mayo. Garlic breadcrumbs, bacon and peppercorns create a winning mix in the prettiest risotto carbonara you've ever seen. Finish with a slice of nicely crusted brown butter cake topped with cinnamon ice cream rolled in cereal flakes.
