A mainstay in River North for over 10 years, Prosecco closed in March without much fanfare to conduct a major renovation.
The team worked with top design firm, Antunovich Associates, to install new lighting fixtures, flooring, art instillations, furniture and a hand crafted 35’ long quartz-topped bar with a temperature-controlled walk in wine cellar. The refreshed restaurant builds upon its traditional Venetian theme. The two Murano glass chandeliers, in the front of house and above the main dining room roundtable, were hand selected by the restaurant owners on a recent trip to Venice.
The menu has also seen a refresh, organized by customer-friendly headings, making ordering more approachable. Diners can choose from antipasti (hot and cold), house made fresh pastas & risottos, colorful salads, fresh daily fish selections, a variety of both fresh and aged cuts of prime meats and even a pre-selected dinner for two.
Executive Chef Mark Sparacino, who draws upon his 30 plus years of culinary experience, made the current menu more consumer friendly, including headings for: antipasti (hot and cold), house made fresh pastas & risottos, colorful salads, fresh daily fish selections, a variety of both fresh and aged cuts of prime meats and even a dinner for two. New on the dinner menu is the Gamberi Primavera, a vibrant and delightful dish prepared with house made spinach tagliatele, sautéed shrimp, baby spinach, heirloom cherry tomatoes and a drizzle of pesto olive oil. The new menu will be seasonal, focusing on fresh ingredients.
The restaurant will also feature a new and improved cocktail menu headed by Beverage Director, Brian Freeman. Prosecco will continue to offer an extensive Italian wine list, and has added a handful of new selections from France, South America and The U.S., all curated by Wine Director, Sam Geatti. The restaurant still prides itself on offering one of the largest selections of Prosecco in Chicago.
