    Stout Barrel House & Galley encompasses 5,000 square feet of space at 642 N. Clark Street, the former Manor nightclub.

    River North's vibrant restaurant scene receives another new player this week when Stout Barrel House & Galley officially opens its doors on June 7th.

    The 5,000 square-foot restaurant sets up shop inside the old Manor Nightclub space at 642 N. Clark Street, and dubs itself a "nitro pub."

    Executive chef Chris Curren, formerly of Blue 13, helms the menu, described as "true American southern comfort food" with seasonal farm-to-table dishes and a craft-beer influenced bar with numerous hard to find items.

    Inventive and staple dishes include Cracker Jacks (caramel corn, chicharon, wasabi peas), Fried Chicken (served with a side of watermelon, feta & chickpeas), Quail (Korean BBQ, kimchi, preserved lemons, coleslaw) and Oxtail Agnolotti (smoked grapes, smoked fennel, espresso consume).

    The restaurant will be open for lunch, dinner, weekend brunch service and a late night menu will be available until 4 a.m. Thursday through Sunday.

    Other partners in the restaurant include the LGN group, known for Gold Cast staple The Cedar Hotel.
