Prosecco off to a good start

Blackbird's (619 W. Randolph St., 312-715-0708) 10-year anniversary party on Sunday brought out all the local rock star chefs and restaurateurs, but Mark Sparacino was probably in the most celebratory mood.

His long-awaited Prosecco (710 N. Wells St., 312-951-9500) debuted during Saturday's wild snow and ice storm, yet he managed to have a great night and almost a full house. With his third venture (he also owns Sparacino at 6966 W. North Ave. and Traveling Fare Catering), he's partnering with Kathryn Sullivan-Alvera, who's best known for co-owning Narcisse and Domaine.

The Italian-focused eatery highlights cuisine from all 20 regions of Italy and features Chicago's largest selection of Prosecco, or Italian sparkling wine.
