Under a light installation made of almost 10,000 wine glasses, dine on regional new American-influenced dishes like savory-sweet Alpine pizza, layered with gruyere cheese and radicchio with your pick of endless wines by the glass. Owned by former Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises sommelier and "Check, Please!" host Alpana Singh and the owners of Bistronomic to open this restaurant and wine bar in River North.
