RoPa Brings Fine(r) dining to Rogers Park

From the "when are we going to stop condensing the neighborhood name" department, RoPa (get it, Rogers Park) finally opened in, duh, Rogers Park. Located just off Sheridan on Pratt in the former Cafe Suron space, RoPa brings a breath of fresh fine(r) dining to the area, which mostly caters to the college-age Loyola crowd. While Devon Street to the south has been slowly populating with better eats, East Rogers Park has lacked. While only four people have reviewed the American fare (with nods to Italian and Mediterranean) restaurant, the spot so far is getting raves. And it doesn't seem like it's just the food but the very affordable prices -- nothing exceeds $22 (yes, an 18 oz bone-in ribeye is only $22). One diner wrote, "The new space was modern, yet cozy. And the service was absolutely impeccable. We lingered long after our meal ended (their special recipe cheesecake is a must!) and we felt welcome for every single minute of it." Their wine and beer selection is somewhat pedestrian but it looks like RoPa may make Rogers Park a new go-to dining destination.
