I think this is going to look incredibly tacky and dated within a decade of its completion.

In brief: Hotel restaurants, Laramar buy, 2 more Linens closures
By Staff, July 28, 2008


Firm chosen for new hotel’s eateries

An Atlanta-based restaurant company has been hired to develop and run the restaurants in theWit, including a rooftop eatery atop the 27-story hotel under construction at State and Lake streets. Concentrics Restaurants also will develop a first-floor traditional, American-style restaurant and a second-floor Italian restaurant, according to a press release. Lincolnshire-based ECD Co. is developing the theWit, which is scheduled to open in May 2009. The Chicago locations will be the first outside the South for Concentrics, which currently operates 10 restaurants.

I personally disagree. Chicago needs more projects such as this.... Dubai on the other hand will look outdated within a decade.

the Wit and MoMO form nice bookends for the Chicago Theatre. State Street looks better every day.

Restaurants & bars

http://www.thewithotel.com/


With its warm and chic atmosphere, our chef-driven fine dining Italian restaurant is located on the second floor serving lunch and dinner.


Upscale gastro pub located on the lobby level serves breakfast, lunch and dinner.


Rooftop lounge
Surrounded by the skyline, 300 feet above the crowds, afloat in a sea of light and color. Above, but not too far from the excitement this is a truly special urban space Both open-air and enclosed seating bring a special mood to spontaneous beverage breaks as well as private functions.

Mezzanine Level Library Bar
A private nook with a public view of the lobby, "L" station and State Street.

The Wit looks like some trashy drag queen crashing a formal party.
