Our Saturday night spin through the white-hot Boarding House produced some downright stunning snapshots. The stemware was clinking at master sommelier Alpana Singh’s month-old River North restaurant, which offers a menu of 450 globally sourced wines by the bottle and 20 by-the-glass picks. While we couldn’t get enough of the dramatic ceiling installation—a sight to behold with 3,456 dangling wine bottles—the handsome crowd (understandably) seemed fixated on the grapes.
