Epic just keeps getting, well, bigger. The massive three floor restaurant in River North features a lounge, a restaurant, and a rooftop bar. But until now you’ve had to decide between those options at night. Not any longer, as today it launched a lunch menu, which you’ll be able to sample at the first floor lounge. It’s dubbed “Lunch in the Lounge,” and features a menu heavy in paninis and salads, which seems specifically designed for your next business lunch. How else can you explain the odd guarantee that lunch will be served in “45 minutes or less?” The full menu is below.
