Hollywood producer McG and restaurateur Jordan Otterbein (of River Jetty Restaurant Group) have announced plans to open a brand new restaurant, CdM, set to open in March. Executive Chef Jonathon Blackford of A Restaurant has been promoted to Corporate Executive Chef of River Jetty Restaurant Group and has developed a new signature menu for CdM.
The kitchen will have an in-house dry curing cabinet for custom charcuterie, a pasta extruder for fresh, uniquely shaped pastas and a Wood Stone pizza oven. The highest quality of unique, hand selected ingredients will circle through CdM’s seasonal menu. More “creative American” and less “steak centric” than A, the menu will draw influence from America’s melting pot of cuisine and change multiple times a year.
Hand selected tile and 19th century wood pulled from a Chicago warehouse will create the flooring. Plenty of natural light will spill into the restaurant, highlighting comfortable leather booths and tables surrounding the all-new centralized bar. Head to the restaurant’s downstairs room to find a speakeasy style bar offering an exclusive selection of cocktails and spirits as well as a vintage photo booth. From selecting unique chairs for each table to ensuring that no set of vintage salt and pepper shakers are alike, no detail will be left unturned.
