There’s something familiar about this place...
The duo behind LM (and newish spot Troquet) in Lincoln Square has taken over the short-lived Tribute. What stayed: Brady Bunch colors and chandeliers that look like alien hovercraft. What’s gone: low-slung couches with high tables—but you have visitation rights to the couches in Lincoln Square.
... and also the chef.
Brad Phillips, recently of a little place called the Pump Room, is overseeing. Rest assured that your croque monsieur and steak frites will be in capable hands. Your aged-cheddar burger is doing okay, too.
Your breakfast meetings: now Frenchier.
Espresso, crepes and pain au chocolat in a private conference room: perfect for discussing financial projections for next quarter. Better yet: room service at the Essex if things turn drowsy.
It’s your new post–Grant Park drinking destination.
They’re planning to open a 70-seat patio by this summer. Which means that after a long day hoofing it at Blues Fest, you and Mavis Staples will have a comfortable spot for a bubbly afterward.
