What’s causing all the buzz on the North Shore? Surely it’s John des Rosiers’s empire of innovative restaurants, which entice Chicagoans to trek beyond the city limits. For this unique dinner, Rosiers and Philip Rubino will present a menu that alternates between modern Italian cooking and globally influenced American cuisine.
