Red Violet Bringing Upscale Chinese to Hubbard Street

In an area that has exploded with French concepts, oversized sports bars and big-monied steak houses in the last six months, one thing River North has been lacking is an upscale Chinese joint. But when Red Violet opens, all that will change.

Dish reports that Red Violet, a 200-seat restaurant and lounge, is scheduled to open toward the end of November at the corner of Hubbard and LaSalle. The spot will focus on the cuisines of Beijing, Shanghai and Sichuan on a menu created by Franky Fong (Lao Beijing, Lao Sze Chuan). Look for dishes like foie gras wonton soup, stir-fried egg noodles with black truffle oil and Kurobuta pork with pineapple and bell pepper.
