RL Restaurant

Right next door to the world's largest Polo store, RL Restaurant is Ralph Lauren's first foray into the dining biz. Since 1999, the restaurant has reflected the vision and décor of Ralph Lauren with what their site refers to as “modern city-club cuisine.” The atmosphere at RL Restaurant is distinctive, as noted in no less an authority than the Michelin Guide: “If you swoon for tartan and pine for the posh life Ralph Lauren represents, head for the boîte attached to the flagship Michigan Avenue store. Like a stylish private club but without the centuries of stuffiness, RL offers options for a quick solo lunch, cocktail at the mahogany bar, or full dinner. The odd Blackhawks jersey here and there doesn't detract from the overall aura. The menu is as classically American as the name, featuring bistro favorites like Waldorf salad and raw bar offerings alongside well-prepared dishes like sweet and plump pan-seared scallops with white balsamic-crème fraîche. The thin, flaky crust of a goat cheese- and caramelized onion-tart nearly steals the show from the rich atmosphere of the wood-paneled dining room.”

Address: 115 E. Chicago Ave., Chicago
