It’s the department store of 2012 openings, with different culinary and oenophilic offerings on every floor. It’s Alpana Singh’s The Boarding House, and after a week of soft opening for the bar and cellar, the whole place opens tonight, including the top floor dining floor with its two-story view of River North. (The bar opens at 4:30, dining at 5:00 p.m.) We’ve got Chef Christian Gosselin’s menu below, as well as details on New Year’s Eve, which will have two seatings: 5 p.m. for a four-course tasting menu at $85, and 8 p.m. for a five-course menu at $105. (No pairings, but we’re pretty sure there will be someone who can help you with the 450-bottle wine list.) For reservations, call 312-280-0720.
