While walking my dog this morning, I noticed a man with a tape measure in front of Grace O'Malley's old location. Being the nosy neighbor I am, I walked across the street and asked if something new was coming.
He said it was going to be an Italian restaurant called "Enrico's". I didn't want to pry too much.
While I was hoping for another Irish pub (albeit one with better service than Grace's), I am happy to see another sign of life on our street.
Well thanks for prying a little, because we're happy to hear this.
It's been awhile since we heard anything about this space (March'ish time frame), but hopefully this is true and we get another option for this area. If we had our druthers it would be similar concept/quality to the Pasta Bowl up in Lincoln Park. Not the best Italian in the world, but affordable and pretty tasty.
With the new restaurant Waffles opening next door and Sanctuary on Michigan opening as well, the retail on the 1400 block of Michigan is starting to take shape nicely.
