I am in Chicago for business , my hotel recommended this as a place with good food. The decor is really old and outdated . My chicken Parmesan was dry and the sauce bland. I would have done better getting pizza at another place

Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a
good starting point to sample the city's energy and
flavor. This central business district boasts
Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier
shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep
your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many
photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of
Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of
