I will admit I totally get sucked into celebrity gossip and read perez hilton and yes, I have a magazine subscription to US weekly. It's like my escape and guilty pleasure to sit with a gossip mag and shut out the rest of the world for a few minutes and check out all the news and fashions that people wore. With that said of course I watch E! News with Guiliana Rancic and I really admire her on a personal level with her positive attitude with her battle with breast cancer and trying to get pregnant. Once I saw that she and her husband Bill opened a restaurant here in Chicago, I knew I had to check it out before our time in Chicago is up, plus I love me some good italian food. It's one popular restaurant! You basically can only get a table at 4:00-4:30 or midnight every night! I came across a reservation for July 3rd at 10pm so I snagged it. It was packed there and beautiful! Pretty good food, not anymore expensive than the rest of the restaurants in the River North area of Chicago and it was a beautiful restaurant. If you check it out in Chicago, PLAN AHEAD and book ahead of time on Open table. you can access it through the restaurant website: RPM.
|Loved the decor and the light bulb chandelier as you walked in the door|
|One of my favorite things...truffled garlic bread. We started eating it before we could take a pic! whoops.|
|Fried Olives with fresh mozzarella and sausage- DELICIOUS|
|Provolone stuffed peppers, they are small bites but definitely good for up to 3 or more people|
|Hubs Dinner- spicy king crab with squid ink spaghetti|
|My friend Lisa's Dinner- Mama DePandi's Bucatini Pomodoro and a side of meatballs (they were very light and flavorful)|
