Last week I came across a building across from the Ace Hardware at Chicago and Harlem that was being renovated. In the window was a handwritten sign saying "Penny's Noodles." It turns out someone who may have been an owner was in the store, and he stated that currently they are planning an August 1st opening.
I have been a fan of Penny's since I used to visit my wife when she lived in Chicago years ago, and went their often for their cheap but reliably good eats (when it was just 1 restaurant, not the current 3 going on 4). Since I now live nearby this new one, I may need to reserve a permanent seat in my name. Can't wait!
