A very formal restaurant which required gentlemen to wear jackets. We forgot to advise our 21-year-old son, but the restaurant was kind enough to lend him a really nice one, which went well with his shirt. My husband's driving, I had wine allergy, and my...More

I don´t know why this restaurant is not in the top of tripadvisor as it is in Forbes, Zagat Gayot, and Michelin. Our experience was great. The restaurant is modern and elegant, everyone from the restaurant's staff is nicely dressed and the service is very...More

Other reviews have covered the food and service, so I'll just add a few comments. We had the eight course menu, with an added cheese course and wine pairings. Notable courses: skate wing and venison. TRU has nice selection of cheeses, so we highly recommend...More

It has deserved the addition of a 2nd Michelin star. Tru has always had a wonderful reputation. Chef Anthony Martin balances complex and simple dishes perfectly in his 8 course menu. The vibe is posh, elegant, and romantic. The Andy Warhol that adorns one wall...More

Nearby
Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan
Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent
Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago
River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out
neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the
place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with
shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and
dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale.
