Any restaurants in the north shore w/ views of the lake?

Are there any cute restaurants or cafes for lunch that have views of Lake Michigan in or around Highland Park area?

Downtown Highland Park is about 3 blocks inland from Lake Michigan. The area in between is residential and the view is obstructed by trees.

Same applies for most/all towns on the north shore.

Generally all the north shore lakefront is either beach or private houses. There's really nowhere with a restaurant that has views of the lake.

Best option is to grab a meal to go and take it to a suitable lakefront location. I plan to execute this scheme tomorrow in downtown Evanston, weather permitting.

Only one. Michigan Shores Club in Wilmette has a full bar and great restaurant atop the bluff overlooking the lake. You'll have to join, but only $10,000 for the outdoor fun, amazing indoor dining, banquet, and ball rooms and theater, paddle tennis, and a large indoor pool with jacuzzi. Also an informal and formal bar indoors, an informal sports bar/restaurant and formal dining room indoors, and a family restaurant with spinner seats at the counter and tables... for burger-type fare with milkshakes and gameroom under construction.
