After a long wait and some still unresolved liquor license issues, Morseland is finally officially open.
In the interest of full disclosure, the chef is a friend of mine and I've done some work for them in the past few months, but I can say that I believe that the restaurant/jazz club is a much needed option for dining out (and entertainment) in Rogers Park.
They aren't running at full steam quite yet, but they've done some great renovations to the interior and have plans underway for their live music series. The food is contemporary American with a bit of New Orleans influence, priced around $12-$14 for entrees and $5-$7 for sandwiches (the menu is accessible on their website, but you have to find it by running your mouse over the floorplan and clicking on the kitchen).
They have no liquor license yet so they are operating BYOB with no cork or glassware fee. There is a small parking lot and it's accessible by the Red Line.
I haven't been in yet since they've been open, and because of my involvement with them I'm not going to offer a review, but I wanted to get the word out that they are officially open for business.
