Roof on the Wit (Chicago). "A bird’s-eye perspective on the city’s famous architectural landmarks, Lake Michigan, and Millennium Park—plus the possibility of spotting celebs like Fergie, Vince Vaughn, and Bon Jovi on the roof itself.

{Table Fifty-Two} For his first restaurant, Oprah’s former personal chef, Art Smith, chose a two story carriage house on Chicago’s Gold Coast. Goat-cheese biscuits arrive as an amuse bouche and the comfort-food menu includes fried green tomatoes with greens and ham and wild shrimp with white corn grits. Some of the best seats in the yellow, barn-like space are at the chef’s counter, with a front-row view of the wood-fired oven. Offer both brunch + dinner.
