Perched high inside the Chicago Stock Exchange building with the world dangling below, Jean Joho's exclusive, cushy dining milieu fancies a private club. It's anything but, as Joho's warmth and accessibility simply translate the complexities of French food. Here since 1986, Everest might not be the hippest place in this fast-paced food city, but Joho does whatever he must to keep his Chicago dining room on top.
