We are excited to announce that Bar Ramone, Lettuce Entertain You’s first wine bar, is opening this summer at 441 N. Clark Street in Chicago’s River North neighborhood.

The wine program is curated by Ryan Arnold (Wine Enthusiast ‘40 Under 40 Tastemaker’) and Richard Hanauer (2015 Food & Wine ‘Sommelier of the Year’). The collection will feature under 100 bottles including small producers and showcasing the best examples from classic regions such as France, Italy and Spain. “The wine list at Bar Ramone will be ever-changing,” explains Arnold. “We’ll be constantly searching for exciting and off-the-beaten-path wines from across the globe to add to our portfolio.”

The small plates menu, created by Chef Partners Hisanabou Osaka and Doug Psaltis has the heart and soul of Spanish cooking, with a modern influence. Highlights will include Bloody Mary Shrimp, Marinated Goat Cheese & Herbs with house-made tomato bread and Shirauo with garlic olive oil and chili.

Bar Ramone will be open for dinner service Monday-Thursday from 5:00pm-Midnight, Friday and Saturday from 5:00pm-1:00am and Sunday from 5:00pm-11:00pm. For more information, please visit BarRamone.com or follow along on Instagram at @bar.ramone.
