Sunday lunch not brunch in Downtown Chicago
I've been unable to find much here on real lunch menus (rather than brunch) on Sundays in downtown Chicago (we'll be at the Swissotel).
I appreciate any and all suggestions.
Many thanks in advance.
Across the river and due north, Cafe Spiaggia or Bistrot Zinc. Cafe Spiaggia has great views of Michigan Avenue (and the Chanel windows). Bistrot Zinc is a good traditional French bistrot. Although seems you live in Paris, so Zinc perhaps might not measure up? Shaw's might also be interesting. Although i've only been to lunch there once.

Hmmm, that's a pickle. Shaw's crab cake is my #2 favorite in the city. #1 being Crofton on Wells. But none of them can top crab cakes in Rehoboth Beach, even at mid-tier places there.
I thought of Le Colonial, but then, Paris, duh. It is a tough question. Another possibility is The Gage, a very excellent upscale gastropub south of you. They have a brunch menu, but the regular lunch menu is also available.
