The newest concept from DineAmic Hospitality, Radio Room is a no frills, American bar serving up elevated classics in a relaxed setting. The food and beverage menus are small, so as not to overwhelm guests with too many choices, but the offerings will please a hungry table of two and up to even the largest of parties.
Normally a safe bet, the Charred Cauliflower was lacking in flavor. While accompanied by juicy shishito peppers and garnished with toasted sesame and cilantro, every bite just tasted burnt, suggesting that the team may have quite literally overdone it on the fire.
I’m a sucker for smash burgers so naturally, the Double Smash Burger was on my radar. Piled high (but not so high I needed to unhinge my jaw) with layers of melty American cheese, onion jam and thinly sliced pickles for a perfect hint of sweetness and slathered with just the right amount of Dijonnaise. A warm and buttery brioche bun sandwiches the patties and their toppings, preparing for each deliciously (and slightly) messy bite.
Forever craving a crispy chicken sandwich, Radio Room’s Chicken Sandwich hit the spot! Guests can choose from three different preparations: Traditional, Nashville Hot and Buffalo with Grilled or Crispy chicken. My plus one and I opted for the Crispy, Nashville Hot to add a slight bit of heat and crunch on an otherwise simple handheld. A refreshing slaw and house pickles lend vibrance while the Nashville aioli kicks things up another notch. You may be using your napkin to wipe more than just your hands!
While we didn’t have room this time for dessert, Radio Room’s Sundae Service and Banana Pudding would have been a treat!
Radio Room is located at 400 N State Street on the cusp of the bustling River North neighborhood. They are open Monday-Thursday at 4pm, Friday at 11am and on the weekends at 10am.
