Tribute, the new restaurant with contemporary American fare at the Essex Inn hotel (800 S. Michigan), was aiming to open on June 21st. Well that didn't happen...
However, we just got word from a friend of the blog that works with restaurants around the city let us know that Tribute is set to open this weekend. The friend wasn't definitive, but said that's what he heard.
It seems like everything is ready to go, so hopefully opening night is just around the corner.
Can't wait to finally try this place!
