I wrote a review of the cafe at the Institute awhile back which led to a discussion about the view from the 9th floor restaurant. I finally made it back this weekend. For Chowhounders interested in what the view was like, see my jounal post of today under, "some days are best with no plan in mind."
BTW, had lunch again at the cafe. The service was almost as bad as on the first visit but nothing that training couldn't correct if management cared to do so.
