Diners are given the opportunity to sample Jean Joho's Alsatian-influenced French cuisine at this Lettuce Entertain You group offering on the 40th floor of the Chicago Stock Exchange building. The cuisine is the type of hearty French fare you don't see very much in the U.S., with one diner describing his dinner of oysters with horseradish and a cucumber Riesling fleurette, crusted Berkshire pork cheeks with a choucroute salad and a filet of venison with wild huckleberries and Alsatian knepfla as "a meal that can brace you for the cold Chicago winter." The wine list includes more than 1,600 offerings, and the combination of the food, wine and the "high in the sky" location makes this a perfect choice to celebrate a special occasion.
