  1. The Ritz Carlton bar -- WP 24 (which stands for Wolfgang Puck on the 24th floor) has good tapas and drinks and a nice view. It is not an open air restaurant, however.

    1. Perch at the top of the Fine Arts Building near Pershing Square now has Saturday brunch:

      It is not a skyscraper, but it is a lovely historic building with fine views of downtown. There is open air seating and live music. We went for sunday brunch and loved it.

      1. While hardly a high-rise, the Cafe Pinot in the Maguire Gardens adjacent to the Central Library has a very nice view, with patio, weather-permitting, and the food is quite good, not exemplary.

        1. The roof of the Standard Hotel has burgers and such and is a great scene.

          1. Thanks for the suggestions. Where is the standard hotel located? WP24 I dont think is open for lunch. The Perch sounds nice, and the Cafe Pinot may not be high enough for them
