Breakfast in Chicago

My wife and I will be traveling with friends to Chicago in a few weeks. Our friends wanted to try a brunch on Sunday. Does anyone have any suggestions for a "high-end" Brunch near Downtown? We would prefer a place with various food stations (omletes, crepes, waffles, etc.). Thanks in advance for any advice.

    Here's a brand-spankin'-new review of Chicago's best restaurants serving brunch:

    Although not listed on the aforementioned link, and as I've previously recommended on this site, I could personally attest for the merits of the restaurant North Pond (see: http://centerstage.net/restaurants/north-pond.html) -- housed in a former warming hut on one of Chicago's ponds used in the winter for skating. A true arts & crafts building with exquisite food!

    FYI.

    Those are all good suggestions. May I add the Signature Room at the top of the John Hancock Center (95th floor) for brunch with a view.

    Caliterra, in the Wyndham Hotel, used to do a dim sum brunch that was really cool: they'd have carts full of brunch items and dishes off of the lunch/dinner menu and you'd signal for service as you would at a chinese restaurant. I'm not sure if it's still there since they had some personnel changes...
