American in Near North & Navy Pier

Looking up at the entry to this 2nd-story restaurant on Michigan Ave, you’d have no idea of the gem that waits inside. The restaurant has the comfortable retro feel of an expensive supper club, without the snooty waiters. American classics – grilled fish, rotisserie chicken and ice-cream sandwiches – predominate here.

There's live jazz nightly. Dress sharp: no tank tops, flip-flop sandals, hats or other casual attire is allowed.
