Michelle Obama dines in this wood-paneled retreat with views of Lake Michigan, and so can you, if you’re a member or the guest of a member of the University Club. Entrance may be exclusive, but currying favor with a University clubber is a small price to pay for a bite of dessert prepared by 2011 Chicago Rising Star Pastry Chef Jimmy MacMillan. You can find MacMillan’s desserts at the jacket-required Cathedral Hall, and the only slightly less blue-blood, open-for-lunch Front Grill.
