Next to shops like Banana Republic and Lacoste sits a one-stop restaurant shop that features food from around the world in true "Epcot meets food court" fashion. As Chicago's largest food pavilion, Foodlife's more than a dozen self-service stations can quench any craving. Make your way from Thailand to Italy in a matter of minutes, or stop in Mexico on your way back from American eats.
Foodlife offers a cuisine for every taste; there's a Southern-style kitchen featuring baked macaroni, cornbread and sweet potatoes. A Mexican grill serves up spicy tacos and burritos, while a heart-healthy stir-fry counter uses only the freshest ingredients. Generally crowded and occasionally confusing (you receive a card which logs your purchases at each station, so that you can pay at once), reasonable prices and easy accessibility make this a perfect place to eat whether you're shopping at Water Tower Place or across the street.
