Overlooking Millennium Park has its pros and cons: watching wide-eyed tourists is transfixing, but with food this good, you want to focus on your meal. Menu items may change weekly, but some seasonal offerings to try include blue cheese with candied-almond fennel salad or jumbo lump crab cake with yellow curry sauce. We can think of no better last meal than the Kobe burger: melted Gorgonzola topping thick-as-your-fist beef between buttery brioche. Skip the defib—take a walk through the park to get your heart pumping again.
