This elegant wine and champagne salon adjacent to Nellcote, is helmed by sommelier Jason Wagner. The name, short for the French label recoltants manipulants, indicates artisinal farmers who grow their own grapes and bottle their own wine. This intimate space is accessed via a tucked-away cobblestone alley off the West Loop's smoking hot Randolph Street. With decor inspired by Grace Kelly, expect to find simple pleasures paired with sophistication and glamour, including vintage crystal perfume bottles lining the bar, antique hand mirrors and low candlelight throughout. Wagner's wine and champagne menu aspires to be artisanal yet approachable and unpretentious with estate-grown wines from local and smaller producers. To nibble on, there's a cheese program with dainty sandwiches, pastries, petit fours and canapes, made by an in-house pastry chef.
