Quartino Ristorante and Wine Bar hosted the rehearsal dinner party, the private upstairs space was classic and charming with pressed tin ceilings, shiny tile walls and rich hardwood floors and tables. Globe lights and eye catching fixtures painted with liquor names added a delightful ambiance. I sipped red wine from a lowball glass and enjoyed everything from cheese and olives to fried polenta and home made pasta. The restaurant itself was bustling with good energy and lots of large parties. I also particularly liked the bathroom's vintage soap dispensers. My first glimpse of Chicago at night was on the leisurely stroll back to our hotel, pretty sure I documented every step.
