If you tried to drop by RL (115 E. Chicago Ave., 312-475-1100)—fashion designer Ralph Lauren's splendid steakhouse right off the Mag Mile—over the weekend, you were probably disappointed because they were closed.
No need to worry. They'll be back in business Wednesday, Jan. 9 following some well-needed renovations. Since they first opened almost 10 years ago, diners have put some serious wear and tear on the interior, so they're upgrading the banquettes, floors and other furniture. They'll probably make a few minor tweaks to the menu as well.
