HAE Chicago presents a discussion with one of Chicago's most famous entrepreneurs - R.J. Melman about entrepreneurship in traditional businesses. Mr. Melman is the managing partner of many of the hottest restaurants and nightspots in Chicago -- HUB 51, SUB 51, Paris Club Bistro & Bar, Chicago’s premiere nightclub Studio Paris, RPM Italian, Bub City, Three Dots and a Dash, Ramen-san, M Street Kitchen, Stella Barra, and the new modern steakhouse RPM Steak.

Mr Melman will share ideas about what goes into deciding the "where" "when" and "how" of opening a string of new restaurants and nightspots? What goes into making them "hip"? What are the real challenges of making money in the restaurant business?

Get a glimpse into how Melman works with his team to decide where and when to open new restaurants and what some of the challenges and opportunities are in running a rapidly-growing restaurant business. The venue is one of the best steakhouses in Chicago.
