Chicago diners have much to look forward to this year

Chicagoans have plenty to look forward to in 2019 with plenty of upcoming restaurants representing a diverse scale. Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises’ has a massive four-level river project. The crew from Michelin-starred Parachute are working on a mystery restaurant in Avondale. An acclaimed New Orleans chef is bringing modern Israeli food to Lincoln Park. There’s also a pair of upcoming Indian restaurants that hope to challenge Chicagoans on how the city defines food from the subcontinent.

The following are Chicago’s 10 most anticipated upcoming restaurants of 2019. The list only includes projects that are confirmed to open in 2019, so Curtis Duffy’s (Grace) upcoming Fulton Market restaurant can’t make the cut. Listed in alphabetical order.

RPM on the Water

Address: 321 N. Clark Street

Key Players: RJ, Jerrod, and Molly Melman, Doug Psaltis, Giuliana and Bill Rancic (Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises)

Chicago continues to make moves to beautify the area around the Chicago River, and Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises — the city’s largest restaurant group — is doing its part with RPM on the Water, a massive four-level project. It’s split into three parts: An unnamed casual restaurant (on the same level as the river) should open in the spring. Above the casual restaurant, a 5,600-square-foot private event space will have its own private 1,800-square-foot terrace overlooking the river. The final component is a two-level main restaurant. It also doesn’t have a name yet, but will have its own terrace when it hopefully opens in late 2019. The overarching “RPM on the Water” name is a working title and subject to tweaks.
