It looks awesome walking up Michigan Ave as you go north across Wacker Drive and the river. It kinda fits in at a cool angle between Trump and the buildings in there. You get a really cool backdrop of density among the different buildings.

The perfect antidote to that nasty Hilton. I'm excited about this one.

As much as I would have liked to see the AMA park/plaza stay, I think Palomar turned out 100% better than I expected it to.

Plus, if you look at Olympia Center, it looks as if the Water Tower Place is just a nice little addition to the top of Olympia. They line up perfectly.

^ Nice shot spyguy. Palomar looks sharp. I like the nonbeigeness of it too.

I agree. It's nice to have a little contrast in that area.

I really hope when they finish this project they clean up the sidewalks on Illinois St. going beneath Wabash.

Heather and Yon
By Penny Pollack & Jeff Ruby


Heather Terhune, who has run the kitchen at Atwood Cafe (Hotel Burnham, 1 W. Washington St.; 312-368-1900) for ten years, plans to leave her post at year’s end to helm the upcoming Sable Kitchen & Bar, a 158-seat “gastro lounge” adjacent to the Hotel Palomar Chicago (505 N. State St.). (Both the Burnham and the Palomar are managed by the Kimpton Group; a Kimpton employee will step up to replace Terhune at Atwood.) “They’ve told me Sable will be more of a 1940s throwback,” says Terhune, who started as a pastry chef at 312 Chicago. “I’m going to do fun and innovative food using local farmers. I’m making my own pretzels, making my own sausage and mustard—things I wasn’t able to do at Atwood due to space constraints.” Expect her open kitchen to turn out shareable bar snacks, normal-sized entrées, vegetarian/vegan options, and whimsical desserts (butterscotch pot de crème, a milkshake and cookies).
