1 - Giuliana and Bill Rancic Open RPM Italian

Chicago celebrity power couple Giuliana and Bill Rancic introduced RPM Italian to the River North this past Saturday night with a grand opening cocktail party. Ten thousand square-feet and supremely elegant, the modern Italian restaurant was a collaboration between Bill, Melman brothers R.J. and Jerrod, and chef Doug Psaltis. (The restaurant’s name is a combination of the initials of each partner’s last name.) Personal touches from the Rancics come by way of a few of Giuliana’s Italian mother’s recipes and uniforms designed by Giuliana herself. Reservations are now being accepted for February 26 and beyond. 52 W. Illinois St.; 312-222-1888
