The grand opening extravaganza on July 22 of chef Tony Mantuano and chef John Hogan’s new restaurant, River Roast, was a multi-layered affair spread across the tavern’s expansive layout in River North. More than 620 attendees enjoyed carving stations and charcuterie, signature cocktails and live music including jazz, acoustic guitar and big band on all three floors of the restaurant which overlooks the serene Chicago River. Wendella Boats offered scenic river tours for eager guests who were also given vouchers for free rides on Chicago Watertaxis. See: more at: riverroastchicago.com.
