4 out of 5 stars
(1user review)

A restaurant in a preppy clothing store on the corner of Michigan and Chicago Avenues—could anything be more precious? The short answer is “no.” It’s plenty entertaining watching fur-clad women whisking in for two bites of Waldorf salad, but there are a few other things worth experiencing here. The Dover sole, for instance, is prepared tableside with so much pomp you’ll think you’re eating with the Queen of England. Us? We’ll take one of the expertly shaken sidecars and the burger, which, surprisingly, is pretty damn good.

A favorite after work location of mine, and many other Chicagoan's.  The patio is always packed in the summer due to the amazing food, drinks and people watching on Michigan Avenue.  In the winter be sure to get there early to score a prime spot next to the fire place in the small bar area.  The staff is very friendly and the bar area is perfect for people watching as well.  RL also serves one of the favorite sazeracs in the city.  Check it out.
