Le Passage re-launches with hot new look, celeb chef
Le Passage's Friday night-opening invite is hot too.
The re-launch party invitation for Le Passage (937 N. Rush St., 312-225-0022) just arrived in my inbox, and I'm actually getting a little excited about it. In its heyday, we used to hang out there so much that we knew all the doormen and bartenders on a first-name basis.
Anyway, this is a new day for Le Passage, which has renamed the old Yow Bar The Drawing Room, where celebrated chef Shawn McClain (Custom House, Green Zebra, Spring) is designing the menu with his protege, Nick Lacasse. Not that there was anything wrong with those scrumptious mini-burgers and skinny fries, but methinks he's going to take it up a few notches.
The main room for the club looks the same save for they moved the deejay booth in the middle of the dance floor, but The Drawing Room has undergone a dramatic makeover that will be unveiled at the opening party Friday, Nov. 9 from 9pm-4am.
Give them a call and get on that list.
