4. RPM On The Water, a 35,000-square-foot, four-story restaurant and event space, is the largest project on the Chicago River in decades. Set for a summer opening, it will feature a seafood-focused menu. This will be the fourth venture for RPM partners that include Bill and Giuliana Rancic, chef Doug Psaltis, and Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises’ R.J., Jerrod, and Molly Melman, who also run other RPM-branded eateries in Chicago and Washington, D.C.
