And to the south, the big downtown skyscrapers...and the building formerly known as the Sears Tower.
The clincher: the menu listed this "buffet" as only $18.00 per person! We read the menu before we decided to try it, just to be on the safe side. As we enjoyed the foods, the view and the whole experience, we talked about how we needed to bring the "kids" here, our out-of-town guests here...in fact anyone we knew here! This was the best dining "deal" in all of Chicago and we wanted to share it with our friends!!!
Then the nice waiter brought us the leather-bound pad with the bill tucked inside. Wes opened it and all of a sudden got this funny look on his face...you know the one that says, "Huh?" The tab was about $100.00 even. Turns out the Sunday brunch price is $45.00 per person; it's the Monday - Saturday BUFFET that is $18.00. Oops. A lot more than we intended to spend. But, we took a moment, realized we had had a wonderful experience and were all the more wiser as a result. We decided to not let that hamper our delight of the brunch and will take our guests there Monday through Saturday instead.
