Fahlstrom's Fish Market, 1258 West Belmont

Just an update from a neighbor, it looks like Fahstrom's Fish Market and Restaurant is about to open. They just put up a retro style neon sign and they have been working on this place for several months. I think they are bit behind but they seem to be pouring their heart and soul into it. Now we all know fish is healthy and we don't eat enough and Jewel sucks for seafood. So be sure to watch for the opening and stop by when they open. Its a very cool place. Glenn Falstrom is the owner and in the photos.

Also: They are looking for seasoned help to start immediately.

Bonsai?

Drove by Bonsai Lounge tonight and it look shuttered. What happened?

There's a large display of what looks like whisky barrels - almost from the prohibition era. Makes me wonder if they are re-concepting to be another whiskey bar (or something similar). Again,...

    Walked passed it today. Looks like the signs about prohibition are part of a marketing campaign (I'm guessing). There's a large display of what looks like whisky barrels - almost from the prohibition era. Makes me wonder if they are re-concepting to be another whiskey bar (or something similar). Again, this is just a random guess.

    Separately, my partner said the Boystown feed on Facebook had an article a couple days ago reporting the owner of Bonsai was arrested for arson related to his former bar. The post on FB has since been taken down. I have NO idea if this story has any merit (altho I know that his former bar DID burn down and there was a suspicion of arson - but that was two years ago).

    The fire occurred in 2012 but he was not arrested until Nov of 2013. I saw the same FB posting and wondered why someone was posting old news.
