Where we've featured it
Chicago in general does a poor job taking advantage of the Riverwalk. Luckily, River Roast is there to pounce on the scenery that all of us want to enjoy. It’s smack dab on the river right at the LaSalle bridge, and afternoon brunch with the views here makes for an excellent Saturday.
TONY MANTUANO: River Roast is perfectly fine. It has beautiful views on the river at the LaSalle bridge, which means it’s also a little corporate and expensive. So what we’re really saying is River Roast isn’t cool. But if you need a good business dinner or a spot to take your parents, River Roast can accommodate that.
River Roast is offering $40 cocktail kits to-go. Some have cute names - like The Snoop Dog (gin and juice) or the Don Draper (and Old Fashioned with orange juice). Some names are less fun (i.e. the Bloody Mary), especially when they’re said three times and conjure an evil spirit.
Rather than relying on food to get us through election night, River Roast’s deals are all about alcohol. Their “Red, White & Booze” special includes a $10 bottle of wine or 50% off cocktail kits, like the Moscow Mule or Old Fashioned.
