Day Off Group

Founded by Frank Callero, Kara Callero, Steven Zaleski and Chef Joe Flamm, Day Off Group is a Chicago-based restaurant group with a passion for developing concepts that celebrate good food, good company, and the highest level of hospitality. The group takes great pride in creating fun, authentic experiences that transport guests to a different place through culinary excellence, thoughtful service, and distinctive design. 

BLVD Steakhouse, the group’s flagship restaurant inspired by Old Hollywood’s Sunset Blvd, opened in June 2017 in Chicago’s Fulton Market district to critical acclaim, earning Eater Chicago’s “Design of the Year” award, recognition as one of Chicago Magazine’s “Best New Restaurants,” and three stars in the Chicago Tribune’s “RedEye”. 

Day Off’s second concept, Rose Mary, is inspired by Bravo Top Chef Winner and Day Off Culinary Director/Chef Partner Joe Flamm’s Italian heritage and the bold, bright flavors of Croatian cuisine. Since opening in April 2021, Rose Mary has remained one of the most coveted reservations in Chicago, receiving wide praise that includes being named a “Most Highly Anticipated Restaurant Opening'' by both Food & Wine and Robb Report, a “Best New Restaurant” by the Chicago Tribune, AFAR Magazine and TimeOut Global, and one of “The 38 Essential Restaurants in Chicago” by Eater Chicago. 

In the coming year, Day Off looks forward to the debut of a third restaurant concept in the bustling Fulton Market dining scene. For more information, please visit
