this visit to tru was certainly enjoyable, but i am just not sure the food was worth $40 per person. all the desserts were well executed and quite tasty, but were no where near the level of what we had at goosefoot hours prior in terms of creativity or overall flavor. honestly, the peanut gooey butter cake i had at big jones earlier in the day was more satisfying in all ways than anything tru served me. when it comes to service and ambiance however, tru certainly ranks amongst chicago's finest, and i went into the tasting know that part of the expense is simply just getting to sit in that magnificent room. all things considered i am glad to have revisited tru, but unlike alinea and l2o i highly doubt i will feel compelled to make another return.
