Just perused the neighborhood newsletter (for Andersonville) and the alderman's office announced the opening of two new restaurants at 4840 N. Broadway--the old Heilig-Myers store. I quote from the Uptown Chicago Commission website (since I forgot to bring the newsletter to the office):
"...two local restaurateurs will open the 'G Lounge,' on the northeast corner of first floor. The cuisine will consist mostly of tapas with a French Mediterranean influence, he said. They hope to make this more of a destination stop, where people would make a night out for dinner....
In a second space, two local entrepreneurs plan a summer opening of "Lazeez Bistro," a modern Indian restaurant with traditional Indian food, but with non-traditional décor and ambience, in the middle section of the first floor space.... They hope to serve lunch seven days a week, but initially will open only for dinner...."
A little informed research on the Secretary of State's website shows a new entity was formed a year ago with an assumed name of Lazeez. The corporate name is SNL Curry Concepts, LLC. The only other Lazeez listed has been dissolved. Hmmmm.
Also announced, "Crew Bar & Grill, a sports bar whose primary audience will be the gay and lesbian community."
Keep your fingers crossed.
