What You'll Get
A stunning aerial view can enhance a romantic repast, or it can interrupt hors d’oeuvres if your Superdate spots injustice on the streets below. Fight crimes of hunger with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get $60 worth of gourmet French-American fare and signature drinks at Cité Elegant Dining.
Situated on the 70th floor of Lake Point Tower, Cité elevates its cuisine to match its lofty height, pleasing refined palates with prime-aged meats, freshly flown-in seafood, and local organic produce. The dining room’s panoramic view of Lake Shore Drive and Navy Pier's bald spot pair elegantly with Chef Frank Mnuk’s modern, French-tinged dishes, such as dinner’s foie gras brulée with pickled onions and mushrooms ($20). Entrees tend toward steaks and seafood, including diver scallops with summer squash, vanilla kohlrabi purée, and tangerine shellfish sauce ($36). While drinking in the view, sip on a signature cocktail ($12–$16) such as the refreshing Le Concombre, a bright blend of eco-chic organic Square One cucumber vodka, St. Germain elderflower liqueur, limoncello, and lime.
Breathing fresh fire into the stoves at Cité, newly appointed Executive Chef Frank Mnuk has logged time in the kitchens of renowned epicureans such as Thomas Keller, Laurent Gras, and the Swedish Chef. Each Wednesday and Saturday summer evening, the city applauds his finely crafted fare with a breathtaking fireworks show visible from the dining room.
