Canal St. Market & Eatery

$$$$

We didn’t have high hopes for an upscale Italian restaurant on the ground floor of the BMO skyscraper in the West Loop. But Canal Street Eatery is a perfectly good lunch or dinner option for office workers in the area. The menu has antipasta, forgettable-but-fine pizza, and some very good pasta. Like al dente casarecce with a rich bolognese or cacio e pepe with a creamy sauce that clings to the pasta like a kindergartner on their first day of school. Sure, the floor-to-ceiling windows overlook the kind of manufactured green space that’s straight from our capitalist dystopian future nightmares. But at least there are some good things to eat.
