Last week, nightlife fixture Billy Dec (Sunda, Rockit, Rockit Burger Bar) unleashed Dragon Ranch, a slick Asian-inspired barbecue restaurant and bar. Not surprisingly, it was a packed house on Friday night when our photographer stopped by to capture the buzzing River North crowd as they snacked on steamed buns, bánh mì sandwiches, and mac and cheese, and cooled off with cocktails crafted from a proprietary moonshine recipe.
