Today I lunched with one of my favorite past Mothers of the Bride. (who shared with me she is going to be a grandmother!) at Tony Mauntano’s new eaterie Terzo Piano at the new Modern Wing of the Art Institute. I have seen the space prior to opening while taking a pre tour while the Modern Wing was still under construction, and then saw the finished product while touring the wing on members day, prior to opening to the public.
Delightful. We both had a Vegetable and Tomato Soup, and split one of their flatbreads with fresh basil, tomatoes and Chorizo. Chef then sent over a whitefish spread with garlic cracker, and Mussels, grilled and topped with flavored breadcrumbs. Service and Food was wonderful. I would expect nothing less, as my experiences at Tony’s other eateries, Spiaggia and Spiaggia Cafe are always top notch.
The decor is simple. White tables, with white placemats, and larger winged plastic chairs. Very modern and sleek. You can also dine outside on the terrace facing Millennium Park. What a great place to take a break from seeing the hundreds of works of art in the AI. (and members save 10%).
