The Chicago club hot shots of Rockit Ranch Productions--Billy Dec, Arturo Gomez and Brad Young--are behind this laid-back yet upscale bar and grill. But with an interior designed by Oprah pillow-fluffer Nate Berkus and a menu planned by James Gottwald, whose last gig was at Jordan's in Washington D.C., we suggest you do some primping before showing up. Entree selections include a chicken paillard, mussels and chorizo, and a Kobe beef burger. A large first-floor dining area reflects the space's past life as lamp factory: exposed beams, brick walls and a 75-foot skylight. An upstairs lounge softens things with rich browns and cremes, pool tables and plasma TVs.
