So delicate and satisfying.

The RL Restaurant-Chicago is one of my favorite restaurants. From the ambiance to the menu. It’s a relaxed, yet polished, club-like atmosphere, consistent with the Ralph Lauren brand. And when I say club, it’s more like leveled-up country club, not a dance club.

They serve so many delicious menu items, my favorites being the lobster bisque and the Dover Sole which is pan-seared and served with a Myer lemon butter sauce. It’s so good!

So here is my attempt to make something like it, at least something reminiscent to enjoy at home.

Chicago is a fun place to visit, there’s always so much to do, from theatre, to museums, pizza parlors, and of course art around the city like the bean.
