    When it first opened, the line was out the door. And over time interest seemed to dwindle. We have three daughters and I can see why some would say making this more family friendly would be a good thing. By the same token, on those rare nights when we have a sitter, it's nice to go out in the neighborhood to a place with a slightly different focus. My wife and I celebrated several birthdays and anniversaries at Terragusto and were disappointed to see it close. Bangers and Lace had my attention when it first opened. The problem was, the place was average and that won't cut it in today's environment. I went there once. While there was nothing wrong with the food or the service, there was no aspect of the experience that made me want to come back. It had a diverse beer list but that's expected these days. As for the "bangers," well, they were just ok. Fingers crossed that whatever comes next will have a better outcome.

    This is one of those locations that seem to be cursed. One after another restaurant of various concepts opens and then folds. Parking is a big issue, I think, though it's close to the El stop and bus line.

The 48-seat and 2,000-square-foot restaurant should open in mid- to late-August at 1840 W. Irving Park Road, Aaron Steingold said. While Crain’s broke the story, Steingold chatted about his upcoming BYO restaurant. Before reading the menu below, here’s a few facts to what except from Steingold’s.

  • Obviously if I mention 1970 I must be nostalgic. The inside was beautiful. A real great experience. The old shanghai inn when it was on Lawrence 20 + years ago was also great, but like most things they change for the worse.

  • OG has gone downhill for a long time now. Guey Lon on Elston/Irving is much better
