Critic’s Notes

Under Anthony Martin, the executive chef, this venerable Lettuce Entertain You landmark has evolved into the most accessible four-star dining experience in the city. The 10-course prix fixe menu starts out playfully (candy-coated foie gras and a frozen beet salad) and then elevates classic delicacies to new heights. Think Scottish salmon with winter radishes in a gentle chive cream sauce or slices of rib eye set in a forest of mushrooms and pickled mustard seeds. Ingenious bread courses, exceptional service, and a splurge-worthy wine list round out a spectacular dinner.
