The Cellar In the Sky
The small building at 71 W. Monroe is dwarfed by the surrounding high-rises. Upon entering you're faced with a long, straight, marble-lined staircase ascending to the second floor. When you reach the summit of your climb you enter the reception area of “The Village,” one of the three restaurants which makes up The Italian Village. The walls are lined with black and white autographed photos of various celebrities and dignitaries who have dined here over its 90 year history.
