The blog Eater Chicago had a informative post about Tribute, the new restaurant opening at 800 S. Michigan Ave. within the Essex Hotel. We've covered the progress of this restaurant closely and are glad to hear they have a specific date they're aiming to open on...June 21st.
There was some concern around the neighborhood when news came out that executive chef Brandon Baltzley was no longer working on the project. Regardless, it's good to hear that this is moving forward.
Beyond the opening date, the Eater Chicago post also shares a link to a menu (albeit it's tough to read). Definitely some interesting ingredients.
Finally, if you've walked by the restaurant you've probably noticed the construction but for those of you who haven't, here are a couple pics from their facebook page:
