Did you know there’s a fancy French restaurant on the 40th floor of the Chicago Stock Exchange? We sh*t you not. Kind of a fitting spot for it actually, because whether the market is up or down somebody is making money off it it, and we all might as well spend our money on food. Hit up Everest for a special occasion, or if your holiday bonus happens to be bigger than you expect.
Did you know there’s a fancy French restaurant on the 40th floor of the Chicago Stock Exchange? Now you do. Everest is stuffy, but the view is beautiful and the food is excellent. You can get three courses for $98, four for $135, or do the full-on eight-course tasting menu for $165. This is where to go with your rich aunt - and hope she’s paying.
You can find excellent restaurants in this city in places you would least expect, like the top floor of the Chicago Stock Exchange in the Loop. This 40th-floor restaurant can be summed up by three particular traits: fancy French food, great French wines, and excellent views of the city from the south end of the Loop. Everything about Everest screams sophisticated in a French stockbroker kind of way, except people here are nice to you.
Food: $168 (plus tax & service charge)
