Opens to the public Saturday; Siena Tavern, 51 W. Kinzie Street This 10,000-square-foot Italian restaurant from Viviani ("Top Chef: All-Stars") and the team behind Bull & Bear and Public House opens its doors in the River North neighborhood. "Italian Food is sexy and the ambience has a perfect vibe for a romantic date," Viviani said by email. "New vibe, new dishes that you've never had, to kick off a new year in your great relationship. The risotto on the menu is by far the ultimate Valentine's dish. The cocktails are amazing and very different. And since Valentine's is your night, just go have a drink. You did earn it."
