This classy breakfast, lunch and dinner spot adjacent to the style-conscious Hotel Allegro features a solidly Italian menu from executive chef Luca Corazzina. Look for antipasti such as grilled baby octopus, homemade lamb sausage, and salumi; pastas, including ricotta- and spinach-stuffed tortelloni in brown butter-sage sauce and a risotto of the day; and entrees such as sauteed sea bass with clams and sun-dried tomatoes and grilled beef tenderloin with gorgonzola-leek puree. The location, as well as a three-course prix-fixe option and a separate bar menu, makes 312 Chicago a good pre-theater option.
