Apparently they just recently opened for brunch because there was almost no crowd there. Staff was friendly and courteous and the food was phenomenal. Go there now before people discover how good the brunch is and it becomes a packed house.

We were staying at the Palmer House and chose to dine at Tesori, located across an intersection from the hotel. The restaurant is associated with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and must be very busy on performance nights. But this was not a performance night, and...More

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
