Duck Duck Goat was amazing! My daughter, her friend and I went. We were most disappointed that we couldn't finish all the food we ordered. My friend's daughter is a vegetarian and they had a special, full-size menu just for her meal. The Dim Sum, the duck fried rice, the Dan Dan noodles were all dishes that I am still reminiscing over. I can't wait to go back! More

Manager Jesus was really on top of providing attentive service, as the server for our table had a large group. We enjoyed the happy hour offerings in the bar prior to be seated and really enjoyed the drinks and appetizers. The homemade pasta was delicious, as were the brick chicken, branzino and wonderful selection of wines. This place was packed on a Monday evening - we will return and I highly recommend. More

Waydown is Ace Hotel Chicago’s rooftop bar and lounge. Named after a sad song by Illinois native John Prine, Waydown draws inspiration from the long and storied tradition of Midwestern watering holes, offering ample views of the downtown skyline, nightly music and strong, no-nonsense drinks.

With an inspired bar and cocktail list by industry impresario Caitlin Laman, and really addictive bar snacks from celebrated Chef Pat Sheerin, Waydown is a place for you, from rollicking soirees to the tender nightcap.More

I've been coming here for quite sometime already and I have to say that the food, service, and drinks are just always on point or beyond my expectations. If nigiri is your fav, this place would make you walk out with a happy stomach. At Tanoshi, the chef only cut the fish by order for nigiri/sashimi, unlike most high volume sushi places. I would highly recommended this spot to any high quality sushi lovers. More
