As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. Or in this case five: looks like Alain's is moving forward.
If you're an avid Sloopin reader, you may remember that there was some debate on the fate of this restaurant back in late February (click here for the comment thread). Anyway, were not sure if they're continuing with the "contemporary American with a touch of Southern" cuisine initially stated, but it appears that the South Loop will have a new place called "Alain's" sometime soon.
Looking forward to what this might be.
