Everest is an upscale New-French restaurant in Chicago, located on the 40th floor of the Chicago Stock Exchange building. Both nationally and internationally, it is regarded as one of the finest dining establishments in Chicago. Although it is owned by Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises, the executive chef Jean Joho has exclusive creative control. Everest is a Relais Gourmand-recognized restaurant, one of the most prestigious culinary recognitions in the world. (Only three restaurants in Chicago have this distinction; the others being Tru and Charlie Trotter's). The decor is evocative of an aristocratic French club, circa the 1920s, with large tables adorned with white linen. Artful touches are in an art-deco style, further evoking the 1920s feel, enhanced by the pseudo-leopard print carpet.The restaurant's tables are decorated with bronze statues by acclaimed artist Ivo Soldini, while paintings by Adam Siegel and sculptures by Virginio Ferrari adorn the dining room. However, the visual standout is the impressive view of Chicago provided by the full-wall windows on the western side of the restaurant. Financiers feel an affinity for this romantic, formal expense-account haven, still at its peak thanks to Joho’s delectable New French–Alsatian cuisine, an exemplary wine list, totally professional service and a breathtaking view from the top of the Loop Financial District . For a romantic evening with a great view this place is tops.
