Bar Ramone is Lettuce Entertain You’s Latest Venture

Bar Ramone will open mid-August in a small, rustic space in Chicago’s River North neighborhood. The wine bar is Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises’ (LEYE) newest joint, the group behind Wine Spectator Restaurant Award winners RPM Steak, RPM Italian and Joe’s Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab.

LEYE wine directors Ryan Arnold and Richard Hanauer worked together to create the concise wine list of under 100 selections, with about 25 wines by the glass. The offerings will change often and the list will be reprinted every day. “We want it to be very approachable,” said Arnold. It’s a demanding format, but one Arnold feels will expose guests—and his wine team—to exciting selections they may not have encountered otherwise.

The list will maintain a balance between classic and up-and-coming wines from Tuscany, Burgundy, Bordeaux, California and more. There will be a considerable amount of Spanish wines to complement the Spanish small-plates menu, such as Rioja and Txakoli. Chefs Hisanobu Osaka and Doug Psaltis will serve dishes like bloody mary shrimp and marinated goat cheese with housemade tomato bread.—J.H.
