Another Shout-out for Acadia in Chicago Magazine

A quick shout-out in Chicago Magazine for Acadia:
COMING: Acadia

“I’m pretty old,” muses Ryan McCaskey, who’s only 37. But the seasoned chef (Rushmore, Tizi Melloul, Courtright’s) takes cues from his past at the 60-seat Acadia, a contemporary American eatery nostalgically named for the coastal Maine region where McCaskey summered as a kid. The classic menu will also source seafood from McCaskey’s fisherman pals in that area. “We will have all the amenities of high-end restaurants, but also fun bar food that is approachable and geared toward the neighborhood,” McCaskey says. Sounds quite hip, old-timer. 1639 S. Wabash Ave.

Hope the bar menu is approachable and affordable. Fine dining at that location won't sustain and the place will be a ghost town a few months later after the hype goes away. Places that are expensive like firehouse are struggling and mid priced options like Zapatista are doing great.

How do you know that Firehouse is struggling?
