Chicago: J. Parker at the Hotel Lincoln

J. Parker, named after Abraham Lincoln’s hard-drinking bodyguard, could have rested on its food and drink laurels alone. F&W Best New Chef 2007 Paul Virant oversees the customizable menu of choices like dry-aged steak and fried pickles, while mixologist Erin Hayes’s excellent, inspired cocktails change regional focus every three months. But the restaurant and lounge has a third killer attribute: It’s the only public roof deck in the city with unblocked views of Lake Michigan.
