As we get further into the month of June, I continue to eat my way throught my Chicago favorites in preparation to head back to Michigan.
One thing I will miss most about Chicago is just having the availability of so many great things right at my fingertips, and I can have a variety of cuisines whenever I want.
One of my favorite places in Chicago is RPM Italian. Yes! I totally admit that I am a Guiliana and Bill fan. And being a fan is what got me in the door initially. BUT it’s the food that made me come back 3-4 more times.
I had a girls night last week with some of my favorite lady loves. We have come a long way from dinners at Taco Bell followed by Dairy Queen, and Masters level nutrition classes.
We decided to go out for a multitude of reasons a) it has been too long b) I could use my leaving as an excuse to force them into the city (love you guys)- they all live in the burbs and c) they had never been to RPM before, and it is very easy to get reservations to restaurants like RPM at 6pm on a weeknight.
Again I’ve been here a number of times, and I have tried most of the items on the menu- especially the pastas. I have never been disappointed by ANYTHING I’ve had here.
This visit was also the first time I have had any desserts so that was nice too!!
Alright so here is the highlight reel:
So as I’ve said- I’ve been here before, and I enjoy every trip back! I have had a few of these dishes like every time- the Pappardelle is my favorite, I’ve also had the spicy king crab with squid ink spaghetti.
RPM also has an amazing gluten free selection – the pasta is delicious (and not delicious for “gluten free pasta” -like it’s actually good pasta), but they are also really good about asking about why your allergies/intolerances to make sure they get things right! Which I appreciate!!
This place is more of like a tapas style place, so I definitely recommend going with a small group of people so you can sample a variety of things!
