Guests can expect a casual feel that caters to Chicagoans looking for good drinks, good food and a more subtle brand of “good times.” The River will be perfect for everything from dinner dates and happy hours with colleagues to catching a Cubs game with a few friends.  The River will also offer a number of packages for private parties and all kinds of special events.   The Sheffield Ave. space serves elevated bar bites & modern American fare coupled with craft cocktails and brews from around the country.  Highlights from the moderately priced menu (created by Barcocina’s Executive Chef Matt Williams) include: Braised Pork Meatballs with Tuscan Kale, Tomato Sugo and Gremolta, Blistered Shishoto Peppers with Saffron Aioli and Garlic Breadcrumbs, and a Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich.
