Italian Restaurant - Il Culaccino - Plans Spring Opening in Motor Row Area

Some more good restaurant news for the Motor Row entertainment district (via Eater Chicago):
Diners near McCormick Place are getting yet another new food option, as the owners of Bridgeport favorite Franco’s Ristorante are working towards opening a fine dining Italian restaurant in the South Loop. Il Culaccino is a 225-seater pegged for a spring opening at 2138 S. Indiana Avenue, inside the 35-story Arrive Lex Tower apartment building. It’s more good news for convention goers and locals in a neighborhood with a limited number of restaurants.
Franco’s has served Italian food since 1986 in Bridgeport. It’s owned by the Ruffolo family and in 2016 they remodeled their then-27-year-old restaurant. They own three more restaurants: Franco’s at the Fountain in Millennium Park, Franconello Italian Restaurant in the Beverly, and Jam ‘n Honey in Lincoln Park/DePaul.
The area has seen a wave of new restaurants and shops coming to the area.  Succezz, Vu Rooftop Bar, Starbucks, Pizano's Pizza are some of the new places that are popping up in the area.
