We went to this place as a homemade past option, as we were running a long race the next day. Mediocre tastes and not fresh truffle for the truffle pasta. You can do much better in chicago.

What an amazing dinner we had. Excellent service and superb fresh food. The vines are a little overpriced (the most expensive one is 6.000 USD/bottle)

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.

The menu itself is relatively small as its focused on fresh daily options. There are a few fish options. The menu is always on the website.
