It's tucked away in the back of the Mezzanine of Water Tower place, great comfort food. Mac N Cheese to die for!

This is a hidden gem away from the hustle and bustle of downtown. It is located behind the food court in Water Tower Place and I guarantee you won't regret going here for any meal. The staff is very nice, the food is excellent and it has

We drove all the way downtown originally planning to eat at the italian place in Bloomingdale's only to find that it was closed til 4 due to a private party. It was pouring rain out, so by the time we got to Water Tower, we were rather irritated and very hungry. All the lines were so long, and then they called out for Mity Nice. None of us had ever heard of it, and we were starving, so we decided to give it a go. Lo and behold, it turned out to be perfect. The food was surprisingly great. I would still choose Weber Grill over this place any day, but it was definitely surprising that all of us were satisfied with our meals (we're all quite picky!) The prices were pretty decent considering it was inside water tower. The service was extremely sloppy. Our waiter came maybe every 10-15 minutes and even then, he was very impersonal and unfriendly. He didn't give us bread and barely paid any attention to us the whole time we were there. I would gladly eat here again, but I'd have my fingers crossed for better service.

Nice little restaurant in Watertower. A little hard to find because Food Life hides it. Dessert menu is great- they are tiny, which is the perfect size after a good meal. Service isn't anything exceptional, but definitely was not worth complaining about. Enjoy!

Great drinks! And the ambience is very cool. The food overall was good. The much celebrated Mac-n-Cheese is actually Rigatoni. It was good, but you can certainly get better. We visited on a Friday with family. The perch-n-chips were great. Moist fillets and crispy fries. The salmon looked delicious. And the flatbread was a hit all around. But it is a big overpriced - and the location is strange (in Water Tower). I'm still not sure if we will be back. Again, slightly above average experience.

Pros: Ambience, Drinks

Cons: Overpriced

Not worthy of a 10 in my opinion. $10 for Macaroni and Cheese doesn't do much for the value rating, no matter how good. The tuna salad was excellent; the quiche was so-so. Awesome Goose Island Root Beet on draft - a must try. Don't get me wrong, this is a very nice restaurant and the food is quite good with generous portions. However, in the sea of great restaurants that Chicago is, this one is above average, but no better. For lunch I preferred Ditka's. Mity is non-smoking - a bonus. While it is in Water Tower, don't hold that against it. You'd never know you were in the mall, other than the lack of windows. Worth it if you're in the neighborhood, but not worth an exceptional effort to go there. My wife and I were visiting from out of town when we dined here.

Editorial from

Remember the good old days? This likeable, back-in-the-day restaurant does and therefore is all about delivering that kind of comfort and simplicity via burgers, sandwiches and grilled flatbreads as well as more slightly elaborate choices…
