Some big news on the Printers Row restaurant scene as a stalwart is reconcepting:
It's a rather interesting development as Hackney's always seemed to be busy and doing well. Maybe it's just time for something new?
That being said, it still appears that the owners are committed to the neighborhood and especially south Dearborn. As you probably know they own the Flacos Tacos (725 S. Dearborn) and are opening Gordo's Homemade Ice Cream Bars just north of the Hackney's location.
Sad to see Hackney's shut down, but excited to see what's next.
