I was looking through the coupon mailer today and noticed this section shown on the Chicago Curry House coupon. Maybe this answers what's happening with Acapella at 1301 S Michigan? Anything will be better than that restaurant - I'd be excited to give this a shot. Do you know anything about this?
Well we've be highly entertained by the message board thread "Why is A'Capaella Still Open?" which has been going for some time. Back on January 12th a reader posted a rumor that it was going to be a curry place. Apparently this is true.
We also walked by A'Cappella last night and the place was closed. More telling was that the entire space was going through a demo (like the ground was being torn up among other things).
The good news is that A'Cappella is apparently done. The best news is that this new restaurant is associated with The Curry House (899 S. Plymouth Ct). If you haven't been to this restaurant you're missing out, it's absolutely delicious. The only question about Nepal House is whether or not the owner of A'Cappella is affiliated in some way. The reason we wonder is because there is a hand written sign on the window talking about a new concept. Maybe this is a partnership?
Anyway you cut this, it's a positive development in what has been one of the strangest things we've witnessed in the Sloop. A'Cappella Bistro has perplexed us even before we lived in the Sloop. Needless to say, it may be the end to one of the longest running inside jokes/questions/topics that residents liked to talk about.
Regardless, welcome to Nepal House!
