    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

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

        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.

          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.

            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.
