Mity Nice Bar and Grill, Revisited

This restaurant was the subject of my first blog posting, and is highlighted as a favorite in my list of restaurants.  Anyone looking for a place to eat on Michigan Avenue should definitely plan on trying Mity Nice Grill, part of the Lettuce Entertain You group.
The location in Water Tower Place is a bit hidden behind the Foodlife food court on the mezzanine.  As you pass by the check-in stand, you will be given a small piece of paper that needs to be returned at the end of your meal.  (I’m assuming that this is a way of keeping the diners at Mity Nice Grill distinguishable from the Foodlife diners.)
We had reservations for lunch, prior to a matinee, and the friends we were with had never been there before.  It was a big hit.  Starting with the great gluten-free popovers (Brazilian Cheese Bread) that they serve as table rolls,

There is enough of a buzz in the restaurant to add a little excitement, but it is not too noisy for comfortable conversation.  It is an almost-secret refuge from the hustle and bustle of the mall.
For my meal this time, I selected Minute Chicken Terri D, which was excellent.  My husband had a grilled cheese sandwich, and our friends had soup and shared a sandwich.  There is a big selection of root beers. All in all, a very satisfying meal.  IMG_1778
