Critic’s Notes

Jean Joho’s refined French domain atop the Chicago Stock Exchange has settled into its place as Chicago’s safe elder statesman. Joho sticks to his tried-and-true dishes, but they constitute such a formidable arsenal of stunners that innovation feels beside the point. Both the seasonal tasting menu ($165) and the smaller, choose-your-own-dish prix fixe ($98) lead to Gallic fireworks, such as buttery Casco Bay sea scallops paired with pan-fried Alsatian cabbage. The Alsatian wines and experienced servers are almost as impressive as the 40th-floor view.
