To say there’s something for everyone at this expectation-defying food court in Water Tower Place is an understatement. You won’t find any outposts of greasy chains here. Instead, this Lettuce Entertain You entity runs its own show with upmarket stalls, including an Asian noodle bar, rotisserie, soup station and even a healthy-eats area—a partnership with Cooking Light magazine. Most stalls turn out surprisingly tasty fare, so expect longer-than-life lines on busy shopping days.
