It is a pretty essential visit for any skyscraper nerd. I hope you at least got to the observation deck, or another restaurant in Chicago with a view!

La Botteghe Di Donatello
Florence, Italy

I can't find any quality images of this establishment, but I have distinct memories of eating a veal cutlet on their outdoor terrace, literal steps away from Il Duomo.

Great thread. Puglia gets #1. Most of these are awesome.

The Tate Modern's latest addition is a "fail" in their main restaurant. It's a case of architecture getting in the way. The narrow band of windows starts about 6" too high for the average diner to really see the view. They might have solved this with stools and higher tables, or put in raised flooring. The restaurant was clearly an afterthought.
