The newest player this week in the River North dining/drinking scene comes from the veterans over at Rockit Ranch Productions.

The owners made a "game time decision" to open Dragon Ranch Moonshine & BBQ Thursday.

The new spot, located at 441 N. Clark Street, mixes traditional American BBQ with Asian cuisine. What's that mean? Traditional BBQ items like Brisket and Pulled Pork receive an additional kick thanks to Asian spices. Sides include Chinese Water Spinach and a Roasted Sweet Potato Hash with Japanese sweet potatoes, and the drink menu features straight moonshine or cocktails and a selection of cocktails to go along with the usual assortment of beer, wine and brown liquor.

Red Hauge takes on executive chef duties and Kendall College grad Shaun Connolly signed on as sous chef.

The restaurant is open 6 days a week, closed on Mondays.
