If you’re looking for the art on this patio atop the Art Institute of Chicago's Modern Wing, rest your gaze on the bird’s-eye view of Millennium Park. But if you’re looking for the masterpieces, those are on the menu. Our favorite: Tony Mantuano’s pizzetta, which is almost always topped with copious amounts of that decadent cousin to mozzarella, burrata. With a slice of this in one hand and a cocktail in the other, you could fall into a blissful reverie here. Unfortunately, you could also be awoken from that reverie by the wail of some tourist’s kid. Never mind the distractions—focus instead on the great wine list and fun cocktails.
