Napoleon always dined in restaurants with sweeping views so he'd be able to spot an English army sneaking up to steal his sauce recipes. Don't be caught by surprise with this Groupon.

$30 for $60 Worth of Contemporary French-American Cuisine

Cité

Guests at Cité bask in a 360-degree view of Lake Michigan, Navy Pier, and Chicago—along with an eye-level view of summer fireworks—from the 70th floor of Lake Point Tower. But that shouldn't distract from what's on the tables there. Chef Christopher Cubberley has worked in the triple-Michelin-starred Essex House and served as the personal chef to Martha Stewart. But some of his skill might run in the family as well; his mother was a pastry chef, and she started teaching him young.

Cubberley's varied background shows in dishes worthy of the adventurous space. Cured salmon pulls in an unexpected splash of yuzu vinaigrette, and tempura-battered apples and dried cherries add some hint of the forest to Berkshire pork. And the wine menu, which spans the New and Old World, provides another reason to linger over the skyline vista.
