ABOUT

Envisioned by Chef Raul Gamble, Raison D’Etre (RDE) merges contemporary cuisine with a unique dining experience. RDE offers an experience that fulfills the desire for both flavor and intimacy.

Nestled in Chicago’s’ Hyde Park- North Kenwood neighborhood guests will enjoy a 7 to 12 course pre-fixe tasting while dining amongst friends or new acquaintances in a private and exclusive setting.

The communal table is intimate and accommodates 8-10 guests. Each course is meticulously paired with a wine recommendation (BYOB) designed to complement and enhance flavor. RDE is a place where guests interact with the chef by welcoming them into the kitchen, sharing background on the wine selection and presenting each course to the table before it is served.
