Edit Business Info
Average Main Course Price is $55
Aptly named, this superior French Country restaurant sits 40 stories above Chicago of the Chicago Stock Exchange building. Some tables have amazing views of the city. Reputed chef Jean Joho brings a taste of Alsace to the cuisine, providing it a simple sensuality. Everest features a seven course tasting menu ($165; $125 for the vegetarian option), a three course prix fixe for $94 or a four course (choice of two appetizers) for $120; there is also a pre-theater menu for early birds at a reduced price, but fixed three course menu (no choices). A representative entree sandwiches a disc of wild hare between fried potato and a soft quail egg. Other options include roasted chestnut soup, wild mushroom consommé, potato-crusted halibut, and venison filet. The wine list holds its own next to the menu's world-class selections.
Best for French Because: Everest provides fine dining perched 40 stories high within the Chicago Stock Exchange Building.
