The Loews hotel at 12th and Market Streets is undergoing a large-scale renovation that has temporarily moved the lobby to the 12th Street side and closed SoleFood, the ground-floor restaurant.
When the smoke clears next spring, an entirely new restaurant - still overseen by executive chef Tom Harkins - will emerge in its place.
For now, though, the Loews runs a restaurant and bar called Level 33, on the 33d floor, to handle breakfast through dinner.
Talk about putting the "up" in "pop-up restaurant." At this - the second-highest public restaurant in the city, behind R2L - you get dazzling views north and east.
