What To Eat and Drink at The Boarding House, Opening Tonight

Tourtiere ravioli.

It's the department store of 2012 openings, with different culinary and oenophilic offerings on every floor. It's Alpana Singh's The Boarding House, and after a week of soft opening for the bar and cellar, the whole place opens tonight, including the top floor dining floor with its two-story view of River North. (The bar opens at 4:30, dining at 5:00 p.m.) We've got Chef Christian Gosselin's menu below, as well as details on New Year's Eve, which will have two seatings: 5 p.m. for a four-course tasting menu at $85, and 8 p.m. for a five-course menu at $105. (No pairings, but we're pretty sure there will be someone who can help you with the 450-bottle wine list.) For reservations, call 312-280-0720.
