Recently entering the field of restaurant accessories to high-end clothing stores near Michigan Avenue—the Zodiac at Neiman Marcus, Fred’s at Barneys New York, and RL, around the corner from the Ralph Lauren boutique—Sophie’s surges ahead. Quibbles over its odd location next to the men’s department vanish as you enter the civilized but unstuffy dining room with a terrific north-facing view of the Mag Mile. Order the cobb salad if you have to go back to work—or a burger and Sophie’s grapefruit-tinged house martini if you don’t.
