If you plan to dine at Tru, you should know the dress code is formal. In the upscale Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant, you’ll see suited men and women discussing business across from the white-cloth-covered tables, while couples look a tad more casual in the navy crushed-velvet banquettes. Men must don jackets in the elegant white dining room, and ties are optional. Ladies, if you’re at Tru for a work-related dinner, slacks or a conservative dress will do. Those who are visiting the Chicago restaurant on a date or just for the novelty of trying chef Anthony Martin’s multicourse progressive French tasting menus can be more relaxed in their attire, as long as it’s tasteful — I spied women in sparkly tops with black pants and flirty dresses with matching cardigans during my dinner. Be sure to leave the jeans, shorts and sneakers at home.
