Eater's Most Anticipated Summer Openings: Moody Tongue Brewing's Taproom & Restaurant

Eater Chicago outlines their most anticipated restaurant openings this summer.  While none are in the Sloop proper (arguably), one is damn close and damn exciting:
Moody Tongue Brewing’s Taproom and Restaurant Address: 2515 S. Wabash Avenue, Near South Side
Key Players: Jeremy Cohn, Jared Rouben, chef Jared Wentworth

Earlier this year, Moody Tongue announced the closure of its Pilsen tasting room, one of the prettiest places to enjoy a beer in Chicago. This was in preparation for their move across town into the former Baderbrau space near McCormick Place. Brewer Jared Rouben takes a chef’s approach to making beer, but they didn’t serve a full menu in Pilsen, only oysters and chocolate cake. That’s not the case at their new digs. Not only will Moody Tongue open a beer tasting room in their new space, but ownership also plans a fine-dining restaurant with Chicago industry vet Jared Wentworth (Longman & Eagle, Mordecai) as chef. They’re looking at a late summer opening.
