If you've been wanting to try Fuel Cafe, the groovy, lively and seriously good River North restaurant at 3455 Ringsby Court that's only open for dinner Thursday through Saturday, tonight's multi-course feast, paired with Italian wines from Vias Imports, is as good an opportunity as any.

And if chef Bob Blair's menu is any indication of what you have to look forward to, then you're in for a delicious night of cooking.
