Another vast restaurant enters the River North fray today at 11:00 a.m., as Blackfinn Ameripub officially opens for business at the nexus of Clark and Kinzie. Billed as "a new generation of the classic American pub," the interior is broken up into two main rooms: a 230-seat TV-laden bar and a 173-seat dining room. An outdoor patio seats 60 in the warmer months. Peek at the menus here and look at more eye candy below.
