Lemon Basil Salmon on the menu as well."
The newly built Uno Chicago Grill is 7,300 square feet,
seats 220 guests including an outdoor patio and full service
bar and will open with 150 employees. The restaurant will

City memorabilia decorating the walls and mahogany trim
throughout the bar.

Pizza Maker Field Trips and fundraising opportunities for

experience and offers the best food around," said Pete
