We love this restaurant ! It rivals Spiagga in quality of food. It is much more reasonable than Spiagga. This restaurant needs more press and should get some exposure on Check Please. It is located across the street from Ditka's which gets lots of traffic...More

Get the salmon salad at lunch. For starters, it's just the right amount. Better yet, the kitchen at Pane Caldo respects the flesh: Not overdone, not over-spiced. Other restaurants should send their staff here to see how to preserve the nature of salmon meat. The...More

Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan
Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent
Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago
River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out
neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the
place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with
shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and
dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale.
