I had the honor to photograph the food of Chef Lee Wolen of one of the most unassuming restaurants to open in 2012; The Lobby of The Peninsula Hotel.    My colleague and friend David Tamarkin (Food Editor/critic of Time Out Chicago) awarded the restaurant 5 stars.  This was his first perfect review in over 8 years.  Please read his review here.  It will bring a tear to your eye.
