As the immortal Ron Michaelson once asked, "Why does lunch have to be so dull?"
Well, if the folks at NoMI had their way, it wouldn't be. The Park Hyatt's 7th floor restaurant offers up an out-of-the-ordinary Winter Lunch menu starting today.
For $25 (you might have to brown-bag it for the rest of the week), you get your choice of soup plus the chef's choice of salad - both served at once in a two-partitioned piece we'd like to see - followed by a main course and dessert. Soups include varieties like pumpkin and coconut with ginger and coriander; main courses include Peekytoe crab cakes and a steak sandwich with bearnaise aioli. Lunch is served from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Monday-Friday, and 11 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Saturday. NoMI is located at 800 N. Michigan, (312) 239-4030.
