Description: Tucked away in a cobblestone alley, just steps off of Randolph Street, RM Champagne Salon reads like a speakeasy on the outside and lively French bistro inside. Champagne is the focus, and Executive Chef Jared Van Camp’s menu follows suit, with bistro classics such as steak frites, a selection of cheeses, and a raw bar. The candle-lit room radiates modern romance, with Moroccan lamps and antique mirrors juxtaposed with an indie rock soundtrack, and can accommodate everything from date nights to small group dinners to large parties and buyouts. Don’t miss the patio, a Parisian-style oasis that’s a summertime favorite of locals and visitors alike. RM Champagne Salon is owned by Element Collective, a hospitality group rooted in the idea of blending progressive and approachable by taking traditional concepts and elevating them. Every Element Collective project is created with a chef-driven approach to food and drinks, an emphasis on sustainability, fanatical attention to detail, a sophisticated eye for design, and dedication to providing a quality experience. Element Collective restaurants include Nellcote, Old Town Social, Leghorn Chicken, Johnny's Grill, Mezcaleria Las Flores, and Expat.

“Exceptional idea, executed flawlessly”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

RM Champagne Salon was the most novel and flawlessly executed lounge that I have been to in a long time. Not only did it have an exceptional wine list featuring a ridiculous amount of great champagne but it had great food too. RM offered lots of choice to enjoy with your champagne or cocktail of choice - traditional accoutrements like oysters and salmon to more esoteric like quail egg ravioli. All work very well.

We returned for a fantastic dessert featuring a trio of souffles with dollops of different ice creams. Once again delectable.

Service was spectacular. Couldn't thank Sandra enough for all of her personal attention.

A fantastic evening.
