The sister restaurant to RPM Italian and RPM Steak in Chicago, this location marks the third collaboration between partners R.J., Jerrod and Molly Melman, acclaimed chef Doug Psaltis, and celebrity couple Bill & Giuliana Rancic. Menu highlights include more than a dozen fresh pastas made in house daily, slow­-roasted meats, wild fish and seafood, and celebrated Italian classics with an elevated twist. Signature RPM cocktails or any wine from the extensive list enhance the dining experience. RPM Italian’s chic space is set in tones of black, whites and grays and boasts rich woods and leathers, making it the perfect spot to enjoy a great meal, night out, or simply a late night bite.
