Chicago’s Lincoln Square will soon be the proud home of an exciting new Southern regional restaurant, Luella’s Southern Kitchen (4609 N. Lincoln Ave.; 773-961-8196) which will open on February 3, 2015. Luella’s will be a delight for Chicago’s many fans of Southern cuisine, who now won’t have to hop on an airplane to enjoy this iconic and varied American style of cooking.

Luella’s Southern Kitchen is the brainchild of chef/owner and Chicago native Darnell Reed who has built an impeccable culinary resume for the past 18 years. A graduate of Washburne Culinary Institute in Chicago, Reed began his professional career in 1997 at the Palmer House Hilton where he served as Restaurant Chef at the French Quarter and the Big Downtown. In 2005, he was promoted to Executive Sous Chef at the Embassy Suites Chicago Lakefront where he handled banquet functions for up to 700 people. In April 2007, Reed was promoted to the dual Executive Chef position at the Hilton of Oakbrook and Hilton Garden Inn of Oakbrook. In May of 2010, he accepted the Executive Sous Chef position at the Conrad Chicago Hotel and was promoted to Executive Chef in 2011.

Luella’s Southern Kitchen is named after Reed’s great-grandmother, Luella, whose delicious Southern recipes inspired him to pursue his passion for cooking as a career. Having earned his culinary stripes, he is ready to join the ranks of many of Chicago’s excellent chefs who march to their own entrepreneurial rhythm.

The restaurant is going to be casual and friendly, with a contemporary yet rustic feel and an emphasis on high quality dishes representing the many variations of regional Southern cuisine including both traditional and creative interpretations of Southern favorites from Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi and the Carolinas.

Open: weekdays for lunch and dinner; Saturday and Sunday brunch and dinner until 10 pm. Ordering at counter and the food will be brought to their table. BYOB with no corkage fee.

  • BRB I love Albany Park

    You can command a higher price if your food is high quality. Gather does this pretty well. There better be gold in that little mound of fish and grits :-)

  • I can't wait! I'm from the south and am more than willing to pay a decent amount for legit Southern cuisine, as that is something Chicago has little of. The chef's background is also appealing, so I look forward to him putting a creative spin on familiar dishes. If you don't want to pay $5 for 3 delicious beignets, no one is stopping you from heading over to Cafe Selmarie for a $5 brownie:)

Norvell and Associates Certified Public Accountants (http://www.norvellcpas.com) - Expat investerare kanske undrar vad 2015 kommer från en ekonomisk synvinkel. Vi frågade fyra experter hur de t ror att 2015 kommer att panorera ut – och vad de tänker göra med egna investeringar i år.

Patrick Connolly, certified financial planner, Chase de Vere

"Mitt tips för 2015 är att den bästa metoden för de flesta investerare är att sprida risker genom att investera i en mängd olika investeringar och tillgångsklasser. För dem som vill ta större risker, är det ofta bäst att investera i områden som är onåd. Som är fallet, kunde Europeiska aktier prestera bättre än många tror, särskilt om den Europeiska centralbanken (ECB) tar mer avgörande åtgärder för att främja europeiska ekonomierna.

"Jag har minskat riskerna 2014, flyttar några pengar på aktier och diversifiera min investeringar i andra tillgångar. Jag är att investera i högre riskområden, särskilt i mindre företag och tillväxtmarknader, genom regelbundna månatliga Premier till enskilda sparkonton (ISA) och pensioner.

"Mina rekommenderade europeiska medel inkluderar JPM Europa dynamiskt och BlackRock Europeiska dynamisk."

The Cindy Shearin Group Real Estate Paris Properties: Top 5 Tips til Sommerhus Investeringer

Real Estate Buyers Agents Association (REBAA) formand Jacque Parker sagde mange investorer bliver offer for ferie romance og købe en ejendom på en fiks idé – som de senere fortryder.

Før du investerer i et sommerhus, foreslog Parker tænke på følgende:

1. Er du køber på toppen af markedet?

2. Har du en buffer af midler til at dække uforudsete udgifter?

3. Har du overvejet alle realistiske omkostninger?

4. Ville det være billigere at ferie-lease dig selv?

5. Hvad er historien med afskrivningen?

Heads Up

Thought I'd share: I live about a block west of Damen and Leland. Sometime over the past two days, someone went through my car and rifled through the glove box. I usually don't keep the doors locked because I don't keep anything of value in it and it's not particularly nice.
Doesn't look like any damage was done. Still trying to figure out if anything "important" could have been taken from the glove box. Again, just a heads up to my neighbors.

  • zippy8 mostly happy resident

    This goes under North Shore oddities. I grew up in a northern suburb but have lived in Chicago for ages. I once went up to my old church for a visit & managed to locked my keys in my car. I was told "that's what you get for locking your car." The message was I don't others trust enough, serves you right. Uh, ookkk, sure.

  • Mike from The Square Lincoln Square Circa 2004

    Is it just me? If you leave you're car unlocked aren't you inviting people to come in? It's not the right thing to do, going into someone's car or house, but if you don't lock your valuables, dregs in the area will take advantage of it.

Last night, my wife and I were awakened at 1 am by loud banging on our front door by an unknown caucasian male who was pacing back and forth and screaming at us from the sidewalk (we live at roughly Wilson/Rockwell). We, and our landlord, called the police who responded quickly and came to check out the situation. The police informed us the the man and his wife (later we saw sitting in a car out front) were looking for their missing 15-year-old son and the GPS tracking of his cell phone led them to our location. There were no signs of forced entry to our building and the cops assumed that the GPS signal was not precise. Also, it seemed these people were banging on other front doors in the area. Anyway, the whole incident at first terrified us, but then we worried for the safety of this child. Did anyone get similarly awakened last night? Does anyone know about this event and have further information?

Police activity in Winnemac Park

Does anyone know what happened in Winnemac Park Monday night around 7 pm? I saw several cops, a fire truck and a stretcher being taken from an ambulance into the park from the Leavitt side, just north of the playground.

  • While walking the dog last night, I ran into a group of drunk/f*ckedup/stoned/whatever kids. I asked them if they were okay or if they needed anything and one kept talking about not wanting his mom to know he was there. Twenty minutes later, the ambulance showed up.

  • I happened to be walking my dog at the time. A teenager was on the ground, obviously ill. The police had just arrived and were questioning his friends on what he took, in order to get him the proper help. Since the police where there, I continued on.

  • Ah, thank you! Hope they're ok, but glad to hear it wasn't anything criminal.

Two people have been arrested as part of an ongoing investigation into a £2m fraud in south-west England.

A woman, 43, and a 23-year-old man were arrested in Glasgow on suspicion of conspiracy to commit fraud and money-laundering offences.

Some 300 mainly elderly people have been tricked out of money, police said.

Victims of the fraud are given "elaborate and convincing" reasons to withdraw cash which is then sent by taxi or courier.

The two latest victims, in Salisbury, Wiltshire, and Tiverton, Devon, lost £98,000. Other victims have been from the Wiltshire, Devon and Cornwall areas.

'Elaborate and convincing'
Properties were searched in the Castlemilk and Crosshill areas of Glasgow, a police spokesman said.

Officers seized a high-value car and a "significant" amount of money following the searches, officers said.

The spokesman said victims of the crimes in the Devon and Cornwall and Wiltshire police force areas had been duped out of about £2m by fraudsters since March.

They said the scam involves criminals phoning victims, who are normally elderly, and pretending to be a police officer.

The victims are then encouraged by the fraudster, who uses "elaborate and convincing" reasons to withdraw large sums of cash, which they are then asked to send to a destination by taxi or a courier, or by electronic transfer to another bank account.

Det Insp Tony Hubbard said he was worried the 300 police know about "may just be the tip of the iceberg" and that others may be "too embarrassed" to report they had been conned.

A Great Plumber

I highly recommend Noel Heneghan 773-297-9153. He is a very good plumber. He's trustworthy, thorough, easy-to-work with, responsive--he always either answers my call or calls back quickly and always comes to do the work quickly. His fees are very reasonable. He's the father of five, so he understands the importance of getting the plumbing back to work quickly.

  • I heartily second this endorsement. We've had Noel do a lot of work for us and he's everything that Eileen has described. Great, honest, hard working guy.

  • Betsy Neighbor

    We have also had Noel do some work for us and it is so nice to know a professional, honest and affordable plumber who will show up and get the work done! Great guy!

Move to Houston

I've been burned before by discount movers, badly. Moving my folks from Chicago to Houston...their things are in very expensive storage right now. Does anyone have any experience with company they 'd recommend?

  • I switched to The Professionals because when Golan's crew arrived, they upped the estimate - which I had discussed down to the last piece with the rep. - and I ended up paying more than $300 more than I was originally quoted. Plus, they broke items of glass. So, that was not a good experience.

  • I had a similarly bad experience with Golan's. They badly damaged a $3000 bookshelf and a scratched the finish off a patio table. They also padded their hours and used unneeded tape and other materials to increase the bill. It ended up being pretty expensive for very poor work. The biggest problem was the watching them fail to take care of my belongings.

    Dolce Casa Cafe on Damen

  • Bill 4500 N Wolcott 25 year plus resident

    I hope that folks who "work" in these small or ... business BUY something! I have seen folks go in to these places get a small coffee or tea,,,, and sit there for hours while others look for a place to sit and enjoy their purchase ...

Plans for lot next to Jacobs Park?

Does anyone know why the city is cutting down all the trees in the lot next to Jacobs Park? Have there been any notices or discussions around how this space is going to be used?

One of my neighbors said a year ago that the city purchased it from the cta, but haven't heard any thing further.

A bit of a shock to say the least...

  • Patty Lincoln Square neighbor

    That lot is going to be an expansion of Jacob Park. You can follow Friends of Jacob Park on Facebook.

  • Bill 4500 N Wolcott 25 year plus resident

    Attend a Park Advisory Council meeting - see what is going on at YOUR park!

Best place to study

Hey folks looking for best place to study I am looking for a place to study late at night and early mornings I don't really like studying at home because I can always find something else to do besides study any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

  • Interesting. I still haven't been in Mariano's, so I'll have to give it a shot.

  • The Richardson library on the DePaul campus is open a lot, 24 hours around finals I believe. It's just a couple blocks away from Fullerton CTA stop, and has a bunch of different places to study.

Anybody know what's happening tonight with all the helicopters?

  • Kaleb B Crafty and Queer

  • Just saw a pair coming south over Rosehill cemetery pretty fast at 8:52 pm. Don't usually see them flying right next to each other like that. Who's in town ?

  • robin in WRP misanthrope

Gunshots near Winnemac Park last night/this morning?

Kept thinking I'd see something here or on the news or something but nothing. Did anyone else hear 3-4 gunshots, a pause of a few seconds and then 5-6 more last night around 2am? We're on Leavitt and Argyle and it sounded REALLY close.

  • Rachel D. just hungry

    Yikes. Hopefully NO ONE was hit, target or not.

  • George F in Ravenswood displaced New Yorker

    Something ;like this would not normally make the news, because gunfire is so common in the City. If there was something unusual about the circumstances, then the media would be all over it.

Shots fired around Lawrence & Clarendon..?

At around 2:25am this morning (12/2) I distinctly heard what sounded like gun shots... Maybe 5 at an even pace, pause, then 4-5 more is what I remember. They seemed to be coming from around the Lawrence/Clarendon area. I've looked at police scanner Twitter feeds and news sites with no luck. Anyone have any info?

Coat donation?

Anyone know of a local organization that takes cost donations? I have a few that could go to schools or something else, like women's shelter. I'm aware I can google it, but would like to spark some inspiration in others! Thanks :)

Snow blower tune up

Any advice on a reputable place (or person) to help me get my snow blower up and running for the season would be greatly appreciated. Preferably some place or someone local - Lincoln Square. Thanks!

    They repair lawn mowers and snow blowers, that's all they do. They have been there for many years and are trust worthy. You can look them up online as well. Good luck.

  • Russo's Ace on Montrose, about 5800 west, not Northcenter but one of the best places to go. Look them up and get a price & timetable on when it can get repaired, many places will take your machine & sit on it for weeks.
