Great shots! The 'Quite a View' is absolutely stunning. I appreciate that you also included the review of your dinner. There are certainly a lot of places in Chicago where you can spend more and score below a 6.5/10 but I agree completely with you that there's no way to replicate the experience of being in a newly opened building like this - espeically while it's growing above you.

Happy Birthday

the 6.5/10 was for the dessert only. Overall I'd give a 8.5/10. The atmosphere and service was just awesome, the food didnt blow me away...but hell it was the first night of service! So I def recommend.

How tall is it now?

Glad to know that SSC had a forumer on the opening night.

I like the fact that this restaurant is located on the 16th floor. Because the views you get are Chicago rigth in front of your face, becuase when you are very high, you see everything far below.

Happy birthday BTW!

Im glad you liked the picture. Here is another one taken the same day. It is a reflection of the ice painting (cant remember its exact title) that will be in Millenium park until Feb. 29 when it will be allowed to melt away
