I am French, from Paris. This is the one and only real French Restaurant in Chicago. I tried all the others so-called French Restaurants here: They are adapted to ""American taste"" and American expectations. Cafe des Architectes serves true French food (no extra sugar in sauces for exemple), the staff is as discret as they are in France ( = does not interrupt your conversation every 5 minutes to ask if you are doing okay, like a child) and very observant.\r
If you really want to eat French, that is THE place to go. \r
+ Ladies, if you are on a diet, eat lunch & dinner at the Cafe des Architectes for 7 days and you'll see what I mean (Quality over quantity = your body feels it and it shows).\r
Et voila. Bon Appetit.\r
Pros: REAL FRENCH Restaurant, from service to setting to dishes.
Cons: Absolutely None
