A lakeside lunch

Blair Kamin, architecture critic I suggest that you head out to the Adler Planetarium and Astronomy Museum, where the wind off Lake Michigan will chill your bones and knife into your face. Please don't turn the page. The actual destination I have in mind is a greenhouse of sorts. Its marvelous views will warm your spirit. It's the Planetarium¹s eatery, Galileo's Cafe, which nestles beneath the building's handsome, angled roof of steel and glass. I love to sit there on a sunny winter day as steam rises off the frozen lake. The view is fabulous, whether you're looking at skyscrapers or the vast expanse of the lake. The food's good, but not expensive. Best of all, you don¹t have to pay a museum admission fee to get in. Adler Planetarium, 1300 S. Lake Shore Drive, Chicago, 312-922-7827. adlerplanetarium.org
