Bin 36's West Loop rebirth, under the guidance of its former beverage director, will be ready for the public on Friday. A haven for River North wine aficionados, Bin has relocated with a new beverage menu that includes wine-focused cocktails and a rededication to food.

Bin 36 closed in December, and now new owner Enoch Shully (who licensed the Bin name from founder Dan Sachs) wants to retain the charm of the old restaurant while attracting younger wine drinkers. For example, they've employed a cold-drip tower (normally reserved for coffee) as part of the infusion process. The beverage menu has a section reserved for low-calorie wine options.

Foodwise, chef Shane Graybeal (who relocated from the D.C. area), has assembled a menu with charcuterie and cheeses, as well as entrees including braised lamb neck, braised fairytale eggplant and the Bin Burger. Check out the full food menu below:
