The Restaurant became a REALITY a couple of months ago! & After the couple’s non-stop disagreement about where the location would be, they finally agreed it would be in CHICAGO!
Wondering why didn’t the E! News host name it Mama DePandi‘s after her mother—and her mom’s famous cuisine?
“As we got further into the planning for the restaurant, we realized that the name Mama DePandi’s felt more Old World Italian, and this restaurant is anything but,” says Giuliana. “We are very excited to be this close to the opening and can’t wait for Chicago to experience the delicious food that Doug has been creating for the menu.”
Don’t worry, though. Mama DePandi’s cooking will be a big part of RPM Italian.
Where did the name come from? it comes from the last initials of the partners in the venture: the Rancics, chef Doug Psaltis and the Melman siblings, R.J., Jerrod and Molly.

Maldives President Mohamed Nasheed announced his resignation in Male, Maldives, Feb. 7 following weeks of public protests over his controversial order to arrest a senior judge.
Maldives officials say no trouble for tourists, & Kuwait Foreign Affairs haven’t issued any concerns for Kuwaiti citizens visiting Maldives yet, however I still feel that a certain period of time should pass until things get settled in the area to avoid getting into any trouble or danger.
