If you noticed something different about the food at this West Loop favorite, you must be a regular. The change is that Martial Noguier has moved on to Sofitel, and chef Michael McDonald has taken the reins. McDonald shows occasional glimpses of greatness, including pillow-soft leek gnocchi, house-cured salmon and a fantastic pork chop teeming with salty-sweet juices. Don’t skip dessert—seasonal creations like candied Buddha hand citrus with cheesecake custard and lemon sherbet proves it.
