Their slogan, “Cheese, Swine and Wine” just about sums it up. James Beard Award nominated for their fine Italian fare makes this the perfect choice for a client dinner along the Magnificent Mile.
500 North Michigan Avenue
This German nook is no new kid on the block, this Theater District restaurant is one of the oldest in the nation. Give your weary feet a break and swing in for a hearty lunch. You’ll dine among locals who have supported the establishment for more than a century.
17 West Adams

24 S. Michigan Avenue
