River North got a rustic Italian makeover Feb. 15, when former “Top Chef” contestant Fabio Viviani and partners David Rekhson and Lucas Stoioff of DineAmic restaurant group celebrated the grand opening of their new concept, Siena Tavern. The Splash-sponsored event was packed with famous faces like “Chicago Fire” stars David Eigenberg and Monica Raymund, as well as “Real Housewives of Orange County” star Heather Dubrow. Partygoers mingled with Viviani while sipping on spiked punches and snacking on inventive Italian food, like Kobe beef meatballs and tuna sashimi with rosemary and garlic.
