Doing its bit to change this trend for those of us who live on the far Northside, Cunningham Restaurant Group (CRG) has delivered a stunning blow to gastronomic apathy with its new breakfast and lunch joint, Rize. "We were excited to develop our first breakfast/lunch concept in the dynamic market that is the Keystone at the Crossing area," says CRG President and CEO Mike Cunningham. "e menu was developed to offer a more chef-driven farm-to- table offering with a lighter, healthier twist. We felt the market was ready for this, and that the Keystone location was ideal." Helmed by talented young chef Natalie Wall, and staffed by professionals who truly seem to love everything they do, Rize occupies a prime location on the ground floor of the new Ironworks Hotel at Keystone and 86th Street. "Working in a hotel adds different challenges," says General Manager Noah Kline. "It can be unpredictable. But who likes things to be the same every day? To me it is much like entertaining friends and family, and I feel fortunate to be able to connect with our guests." With every new establishment that CRG opens, there is an incremental surge in confidence and panache. Right from the get-go, Rize has delivered an outstanding level of both food and service, combined with a casual precision and unerring professionalism that shows just how far we have travelled in the past decade or so. Featuring a succinct menu that caters to small appetites and large, carnivores and vegans, traditionalists and the more adventurous, Rize, within the space of just a few dozen menu items, offers something for just about everyone. 80
