R.J. and Jerrod Melman, sons of Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises impresario Rich Melman, are behind this midscale River North catchall that offers a menu that ranges from open-faced BLTs to halibut tacos. The crowd is as varied as the eats—tourists, ladies who lunch and local working stiffs rub elbows—and everyone seems content with the large portions and boisterous scene. Braised pork tacos with housemade tortillas are a surprise hit, and plump maki do the trick if sushi cravings hit.
