Sitting in the heart of Millennium Park, you’d think Park Grill would be a tourist trap that serves overpriced, mediocre food. Surprise! At this kid-friendly spot, the food is fresh, honest, and varied. Sandwich highlights include falafel, turkey pastrami, and a lobster roll, while entrees rival nearby upscale eateries, with choices that include Skuna Bay salmon, steak and pommes frites, and lobster fra diavola, along with the requisite salads, burgers, and flatbreads. In the summer, head to the outdoor plaza, where you can bask in the sun, listen to live music, and ogle the hordes of visitors who flock to Millennium Park, aka Chicago’s front yard.
