Meals are backed by the soothing sounds of the Ritz-Carlton Chicago's iconic illuminated fountain at this simple but elegant eatery located in the 12th-floor lobby area of the luxury hotel. The brasserie-style menu features new twists on celebrated favorites, drawing on a variety of cultural influences. Start with steamed mussels and frites or fruits de mer, a heaping tower of fresh seafood and shellfish. The salad selection is extensive, offering everything from an ahi tuna nicoise to a Maine lobster salad; simple yet posh specialty sandwiches come in the form of wild mushroom-rosemary focaccia and wagyu burgers. Choose from more than 40 wines by the glass to complement entrees like trofie pasta with clams, and save room for decadent dessert classic such as the lemon tart with sable crust and fresh raspberries. A separate menu featuring lighter bites such as kobe sliders and an artisan cheese plate is offered in the art deco-inspired bar area.
