THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Rhapsody, Chicago, IL

THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Rhapsody Restaurant Review

: Rhapsody has had a number of chefs over the years; with Dean Zanella (Aldino’s, 312 Chicago) in the kitchen, it has clearly hit its stride. This gracious restaurant borders on being swank with its white tablecloths, candles and elegant tableware, and it has one of the loveliest seasonal patios citywide. Small plates are quite alluring---snag several, such as the Taleggio arancini or prosciutto-wrapped shrimp, hit with the heat of Calabrian peppers, to share. Wild boar ragù, all comforting and hearty, is a sweetly-tinged follow-up, though the Prime strip steak with salsa verde actually steals the show. However, the heartwarming rigatoni with veal meatballs, escarole and ricotta salata, is enjoyable, too. The waitstaff is informed, pleasant and cognizant of those en route to the symphony. There's a first-rate wine list covering a lot of geography; you’ll also find a good selection of wines by the glass as well as a handful of half bottles.
