Chicago and DC: Feast of the Seven Fishes at RPM Italian

Both the Chicago and DC locations of modern Italian restaurant will honor Christmas Eve with innovative takes on the classic, peace-centric Italian meal. The menus will be similar, featuring blue fin tuna crudo with blood orange and watercress, uni spaghetti with black truffle, and a whole roasted Denver sole that generously serves two. RPM’s regular menu of fresh pastas, slow-roasted meats, and wild seafood will also be available. But for the holiday, they offer many reasons to embrace the holiday tradition.
