One of the traditional Chicago restaurants that is both very high in quality and reasonable in price. Recommended by a salesman at Leverger's in Marshall Field's, we had a very nice lunch in an atmosphere that is white-tablecloth with a bit of saloon bar style.
My husband ordered an olive burger which made a very full meal for $10.95, and I had a nice chopped salad $6.95. The house Merlot wine was $6 a glass. Strong but very tasty coffee was $2.25--a very reasonable tab for a sit-down meal in a stylish environment.
This restaurant is just a bit north of the famous water tower on the first floor of the Seneca Hotel. We enjoyed our meal and wished we had more time in the city so that we could return for a full dinner. As Chicago is a very busy city, I strongly suggest you make reservations for dinner, especially on a weekend evening.
