Signature Room at the 95th Restaurant Review

: You won't find better dining with a view in Chicago, save at Everest. Not surprisingly, the prices are up there, given you pay a premium for the scenery. (However, the restaurant does donate a portion of the proceeds of select dishes to a charity chosen each month.) Appetizers may feature comfort food with a luxe twist, as with the sautéed shrimp with creamy grits and grilled shishito pepper vinaigrette. The kitchen has a nice way with seafood, so try the pan-seared halibut or twin lobster tails to follow. Roasted rack of lamb may be paired with brie semolina, broccolini and toasted hazelnuts. Steaks and sides such as potato croquettes round out the menu. Desserts may include coconut lime cheesecake or white and dark chocolate mousse cake. Service maintains a pleasant air, and the wine list is worthy of a special occasion. Weekend brunch is a popular affair and features buffets of starters and desserts plus entrée options such as bread pudding french toast or steak and eggs. The Signature Lounge at the 96th (one floor above) offers small plates and sandwiches, along with specialty cocktails.
