16 Upcoming Chicago-Area Restaurants and Bars to Know

ANDERSONVILLE— Blu 57, that new Thai-fusion restaurant at 5701 N. Clark St., should open in July. DNAinfo spoke with the owners who shared more details.

AVONDALE— The team behind the Whistler in Logan Square have nothing new to report on their new project, codenamed Sleeping Village. But it appears in this photo they’ve made some significant progress on the patio at 3734 W. Belmont Ave. A.J. LaTrace

...the South Side have established a Kickstarter to raise money to open their storefront at 9927 S. Wood St. The shop is called Sweet Freaks. As of Monday they’ve raise more than $500...

LAKEVIEW— Kitchen 17, one of Chicago’s favorite vegan restaurants is slowly working on their move around the corner at 3132 N. Broadway St. Apparently they’re still working on permits.

LAKEVIEW— That food hall from the Furious Spoon/FireFin Poke Shop company secured a battery of permits, according to Curbed Chicago. There will be a trio of bars and as many as 20 vendors inside the building at 3833 N. Broadway St.

...second pour-your-own beer bar, is shooting for a July 1 opening date at 2211 N. Milwaukee Ave. The Tribune has details about the date. Navigator joins Tapster in Wicker Park/Bucktown and...

THE LOOP— Olive Mediterranean Grill is hiring for a new location at Randolph and Wabash. Check out their Facebook post. It’s the quick-serve chain’s sixth location.

PORTAGE PARK— A nautical-themed sandwich shop is coming to the Northwest Side. It’s called Charley Noble and the owners told DNAinfo they hoped to open by the end of June at 6011 W. Irving Park Road.

RAVENSWOOD— Metropolitan Brewing is getting close to opening the taproom at 5121 N. Ravenswood. They’ve been working on the taproom since 2015.

WEST LOOP— The first Bonci outside of Italy is hiring. The mecca for Roman-style pizza has selected Chicago as the first market outside of Europe. There will soon be only two places to get this pizza: Rome and Chicago at 161 N. Sangamon St. Maybe you can be their pizza chef.

WRIGLEYVILLE— This new bar in Wrigleyville appears to have no connection with Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo. Nevertheless, there’s a liquor application for an establishment called Rizzo’s Bar & Inn at 3658 N. Clark St. The owner is listed as Vincent Rizzo, so that’s not misleading at all.

DES PLAINES— A suburban bar is remodeling. The owners of Beacon Tap have started work and are urging folks to check out their Facebook page to check out progress at 1374 Lee St.
