Terzo Piano is a restaurant that literally makes your heart skip a beat the moment you walk in.
With its high ceilings, crisp, white furniture, spare decor
and wall of glass windows providing a sweeping view of Chicago old and
new, it’s the embodiment and reflection of the city’s stunning Mies van der Rohe-infused skyline.
On a clear day, when light is pouring in, sending angular shadows shooting across the pristine, gleaming furniture, the space is just breath-taking. This restaurant, which just opened in the Art Institute of Chicago’s modern wing in May, truly does the city justice.
All of this, of course, combines to set some incredibly high expectations for the food itself.
But that, it turns out, is another story.
