Burgers, pizzas, pastas and salads are part of the mid-day menu at this new Third Ward hotel restaurant.

Tre Rivali – the restaurant at the Third Ward’s Kimpton Journeyman Hotel (310 E. Chicago St.) – hosted its soft opening for lunch service this week Monday, as evidenced by diners eating pizzas and pasta while seated at umbrella-topped sidewalk tables on Broadway.

The lunch menu has a bit of overlap with dinner, in that it also offers pastas (carbonara, $17, mascarpone cheese ravioli, $17 and the pasta pictured  in the photo above), wood-roasted pizzas and entrees like grilled swordfish, creamy corn flan and curry roasted carrots ($25). Other items: shaved celery and escarole salad ($9); tomato and cucumber fattoush ($16); slow-roasted pork sandwich ($15); burger with fontina, bacon jam, pesto aioli and a sunny side-up egg ($16); and a lentil-scallion veggie burger ($13). Lunch hours: Mon-Fri 11 a.m.-2 p.m.

Next to come is Saturday-Sunday brunch service, expected to begin the weekend of August 27.
