59 W. Hubbard; a lettuce entertain you restaurant (so you know it will be good!) and another Ramen spot to satisfy your never-ending ramen cravings (if you’re like me).

IO Urban Roofscape

127 W. Huron; located on the 4th floor of the Godfrey Hotel. Two bars and a great view of the Chicago skyline through the retractable roof. The menu features great classics and quite a few unique dishes and a dessert called a deep dish apple tart that I am dying to try! The outdoor lounge is open year round so although we won’t wish away summer, you can enjoy a glass of hot butter rum in the winter and still have the city view.
