Tavern at the Park, the clubby restaurant and bar across from Millennium Park, is pushing what may well be the most over-the-top burger in town. Dubbed the Millennium Burger, it's stacked with duck confit, foie gras terrine, applewood-smoked bacon, Emmental cheese, and organic greens, then topped with house-made Dijon aioli and sauce ravigote. It's $24 and comes with shoestring fries or onion straws.

You might also consider the Max Burger, two burgers stacked with a fried egg, four strips of bacon, an English sausage patty, cheddar cheese, and "full garden garnish." It's only $17.

For a special occasion, there's the Cloud Gate martini (pictured), which comes with a Tiffany necklace. It's $175; no word on whether it's rimmed with filings of silver.
