The Chicago food experience could be amazing if they drew on the very talented array of local restaurants in the neighborhoods. Could you imagine guest appearances by everyone's favorite foodie joints? Maybe a Hot Dougs shows up again for a few months? Maybe Au Cheval is dishing out burgers?
The James Corner redesign of the outdoor pier and plazas have already made Navy Pier dramatically better. Just look toward the lake, rather than to the shops, and it's an almost pleasant place. Much more open and minimalist.
