Lunch at NoMi

I’m not huge on soup unless I’m lucky enough to be dining at NoMi in the Park Hyatt. Their awesome cold watermelon soup with star anise rocks it in the summer, but this month I am worshipping the warm pumpkin and coconut soup served with a side of cold potato salad with bacon lardons. I recently tried the luscious concoction along with Peekytoe crab cakes and will definitely be back, especially since they just rolled out a $25 starter-entrée-dessert lunch special this week. And even after dessert (which ranges from chocolate caramel brownie macaroon to carrot cake), you get to try not to devour the entire silver box of turmeric marshmallows, hazelnut caramel, licorice chocolate ganache, orange tea cake with hazelnut caramel candies delivered to the table at the end. NoMi, Park Hyatt Chicago, 800 N. Michigan Ave., 312.239.4030
