North Pond, in the middle of Lincoln Park, is like an extremely attractive person who never gets asked out because everyone assumes he or she is in a relationship. In practical terms, this means it’s a very good spot to snag a last-minute reservation. The space and view make you feel like you’re in a really nice cabin, and the seasonal American food is always outstanding.
