    The Four Seasons has loosened its tie a bit with new restaurant Allium, but Michelin-starred chef Kevin Hickey's masterful and whimsical play on American classics still captures four-star decadence.

    Cozy and intimate, neighborhood stalwart Bacchanalia offers a no-frills yet inviting and genuine Italian experience—generous portions, a delightfully engaging staff, and even the slightly kitschy décor transport you to Sunday dinner in an Italian grandmother’s home

    226 West Chicago Ave. Chicago, IL 60610   (312) 265-0911

    840 N. Wabash Ave. Chicago, IL 60611   312-944-8400
