Carmine’s invites you to experience an unforgettable meal with authentic Italian recipes passed down from generation to generation. A true cosmopolitan hangout located in Chicago's Gold Coast neighborhood, Carmine’s offers live entertainment, an extensive bar, and an outdoor café* that is the place to see and be seen from sun up to sun down. <br /><br />Whether dining al fresco* or inside the elegant two level dining room, even the most demanding taste buds will be overjoyed by Carmine’s impressive menu selections. Signature dishes include clams and oysters on the half shell, steaks and chops grilled to perfection, melt-in-your-mouth veal and chicken dishes, and of course generous portions of award-winning pastas. From the moment you are seated and served, you’ll understand why Carmine’s is packed with food aficionados every night of the week. We're now open for Saturday & Sunday brunch! <br /><br />*Unfortunately, we DO NOT accept reservations for the outdoor patio garden.

From the team behind Blackbird and avec comes this homage to beer, pork, and fish. Executive Chef Paul Kahan and Chef de Cuisine Cosmo Goss have developed a network of proveyors to supply the restaurant with hand-selected, sustainably-harvested fish and seafood as well as sustainably-raised heirloom pork to anchor a rustic menu of simple, eclectic fare. The extensive international beer list, developed by partners Eduard Seitan and Terry Alexander, features 100 or so ales, lagers, stouts and ciders by the bottle, 12 of those available on tap. Like Blackbird and avec, The Publican is a design partnership from the James Beard Award-winning team of Thomas Schlesser and partner Donnie Madia.

RoSal's is about wonderful Sicilian food served in abundant portions. About remembering the sounds, aroma & flavors of the "old neighborhood". About a way of life for people who really appreciate their food & have come to expect great varieties of pasta, fish, cheese, meat and breads. The same variety and quality that make a journey through Italy & through RoSal's so rewarding. Please join our family for dinner or book a private party. <br /><br />We are loving all the new guests that have been coming in for dinner based on our reviews from long time guests! Our guests, their dining experience, is most important to us! We look forward to meeting you or seeing you again! <br /><br />Joe, Cyndi & RoSal's Family

Quartino, an urban Italian restaurant and wine bar, is the creation of Hugo Ralli, Steve Lombardo (owners of Gibsons Bar & Steakhouse, Hugo’s Frog Bar & Fish House, LUXBAR) and Exec Chef / Partner John Coletta. Quartino combines the best of Italy’s osteria and enoteca to offer an authentic everyday Italian food and wine experience. “Where wine is cheaper than water” Throughout Europe, in bistro after osteria after enoteca, fresh local wines of high quality and unique characteristics are priced as a less expensive alternative to bottled water. Reservation requests for patio seating are not accepted. Patio seating is first come, first serve.
