    Knowing very few restaurants in Chicago I'll just take a whack at it and guess the Chicago Art Museum dining room. Reminds me of something I saw on Check Please.

    Shot in the dark based on the above clue; does the MCA have a restaurant?

    Yes, but this mystery place is not it.

    Based on what I can figure out, this is a French influenced restaurant (fancy enough to put foam and truffles on food), maybe close to the Art Institue, and has the endorsement (or influence) of Escoffier. The sign about great food is a little tacky tho. Could be Tru. That's it, I'm tapped out. Where is ReneG when you need him?

    It's Ria, like Fujisan said. Hammond tags his flickr photos too diligently.

    Chef Danny Grant's profile pic on the Ria website has the Escoffier artwork from the first clue in the background.

    Well done, Fujisan. I guess this wasn't an easy one.
