RIVER NORTH: Bar Ramone

As the first wine bar from the Lettuce Entertain You dining empire, Bar Ramone is a new addition to the local scene that has quickly established itself as a standout place to enjoy vino in Chicago. Like walking into a bar in Barcelona, the menu and space give some serious Spanish flair. You can order a porrón, a traditional Spanish drinking vessel filled with Txakoli, a low alcohol wine that is common in the Basque region. A menu of small plates include pan con tomate, a traditional Spanish-style tomato bread, plus a variety of Spanish hams and cheeses, pintxos and a fresh selection of seafood from acclaimed chef partners Doug Psaltis and chef Hisanobu Osaka. The man behind the carefully curated beverage program is Richard Hanauer, who previously oversaw the programs at the RPM Restaurants and was once named one of Food and Wine’s sommeliers of the year. He’s a rockstar in the wine world that all but guarantees you’ll be drinking some of the best pours around. 441 N. Clark St, 312.985.6909
