Italian

The sleek interior and contemporary Italian fare at this Near North Side spot are every bit as fashionable as the designer clothing sold in the retail giant it's nestled within. With a price point to match, a tuna tartare appetizer and chicken milanese main with a glass or half bottle of white wine will set you back significantly, even at lunch hour. You pay in equal parts for delicacy and presentation -- small portioned dishes plopped right in the middle of massive white plates, dripped and drizzled and garnished until it looks less like food and more like modern art.
