When this seasonal American spot opens in early September, it will take its place among the early pioneers of the South Loop’s fine dining scene, with customizable five- or eleven-course tasting menus, as well as a la carte options and a bar menu for neighborhood noshers who want to stop by after work.
Executive chef Ryan McCaskey (formerly of Rushmore and Courtright’s) has lived in the ‘hood for more than 11 years and is looking to fill a niche in upscale dining. As for the menu (which is still being dreamed up), the eats
reflect a “contemporary classic” influence with inventive takes on traditional favorites.
This is the first time we've heard a date put on the project, so mark your calendars for the fall. We also found out some information about the space:
The two-story space itself overlooks a park plaza, and there are plans for a small outdoor patio for the summer months.
As we all know, the park has yet to break ground, but glad to hear that this restaurant will take advantage of the planned park which will be next door to the North. We're excited for this addition...stay tuned.
