Raised is a cute flower-box-lined rooftop right on Wacker and State with a great view of the Chicago River. This spot is low key, with a menu of elevated bar food items like tenderloin sliders, lobster rolls, and charcuterie that’s good for sharing. Come here when you don’t want to worry about being blown away by gale force winds.
