Art Institute question

mousse | Jul 15, 2009 12:59 PM

I have a group of 10 friends that will be visiting the art institute on a friday before lunch. Last time they were here, we went to Frontera Grill. This time I thought we could go to Terzo Piano, but after sampling the food this weekend, my thoughts are great atmosphere, great menu that reads better than the food. The chicken sandwich had way too much bread and the trio of burgers was ok, but not great. Service was great. Also liked the wine list.

So.......recommendation needed. Would you go there just for the atmosphere, view, and novelty? Or to the Gage which is dependable for lunch? Or back to Rick Bayless but to Topolobampo this time? These people really like good food so I'm leaning toward Topolo, but also thought the Terzo Piano's view is stunning. What do you think?
