Chicago q is the modern urban BBq experience. <br /><br /><br />What makes q so good? It could be our savory North Carolina BBq rubs tirelessly mastered by ‘BBQ Pitmaster’ and Chef Partner Lee Ann Whippin. Lee Ann earned her place in the BBq hall-of-fame with countless accolades often featured on TLC’s BBQ Pitmasters and the Food Network. Our Chef Partner takes BBq seriously.<br /><br /><br /><br />

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.

Custom menu selections can be created to suit any occasion. The banquet room features a fully complimented bar, wood dance floor, and wood-burning fireplace. <br><br> Located along the North Branch of the Chicago River on Erie Street, The Erie Café serves prime aged steaks, chops and house specialties in a classic club-like environment.

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
