Chinese Restaurant

I am looking for a good Chinese Restaurant/Take-out in the Lakeview or Roscoe Village Area. I have tried a few and nothing to make me want to go back again. Any suggestions? Thank you.

  • ....and now I need to have Young's hot & sour soup for lunch. :-)
    Young's is much nicer inside than the sign would indicate, btw - great for in-house diming, too!

  • And I always feel bad just going for takeout, because the place is nice, they have alcohol, but no one is ever in there. One of these days.

A Lakeview woman was beaten in an armed robbery early Wednesday morning by a man whose jacket retails for over $1,000.

Police and a fire department ambulance met the victim near the crime scene at Lakewood and Henderson shortly after 3AM.

She told them that the offender took her purse, which contained a cell phone and other items, before fleeing southbound on Sheffield toward Belmont.

The robber is described as a black man, 5'9" tall, and 150 pounds. He wore a distinctive red Pelle Pelle brand letterman jacket with white lettering and "sequins" on the back.

Other officers and even the ambulance driver reported that they saw the offender minutes before the robbery call came in—once at the Subway restaurant near Belmont and Clark and again walking eastbound on Buckingham Place near Halsted.

Unfortunately, officers were unable to locate the man after the robbery was reported.

The incident is recorded as an armed robbery in CPD case HX468088.

Police Activity at 555 Cornelia Ave

Hey guys! I've been trolling the internet and EveryBlock trying to figure out what the heck happened but at about 5am on 12/4 (thursday morning) I walked out of my place and there were GOBS of police vehicles pointed in every which direction on Cornelia and Pine grove at that T in the road and had the street blocked off for like 6 hours. Seemed like there was a body on the ground beneath the balconies but I never heard any sirens or ambulances.... any one know what happened?

  • Rylee ChiDoc

    So sad :( and no the scaffolding has been there for quite some time.... Maybe 5 months? However, I hadn't really seen anyone working on the windows until after this happened.

  • G.

    How awful! I wonder if a window gave out and he fell? Keep us updated on any developments.

Locked Out Neighbor Scam

Just had someone ring my doorbell, then jiggle my doorhandle, and when I answered (a minute later) he was on his way down my steps, but started into a short shpeel about being my neighbor from across the street and being locked out. I was standoff-ish, so he scurried off, but the while thing was so strange that I called the police to do a driveby. Afterward I did a quick Google search which led me to another post on...

Just had someone ring my doorbell, then jiggle my doorhandle, and when I answered (a minute later) he was on his way down my steps, but started into a short shpeel about being my neighbor from across the street and being locked out. I was standoff-ish, so he scurried off, but the while thing was so strange that I called the police to do a driveby. Afterward I did a quick Google search which led me to another post on their site from the North Center neighborhood.

So this guy's definitely a scammer. Just search this site for "neighbor in distress" and read the posts. Wanted to start a new post here since it appears the scammer is now starting to target the Lakeview neighborhood.

From the other posts, it appears the guy is after a few bucks, but who knows when that starts to escalate.

Guy was white, about 6', short hair, medium-light brown, maybe 50 years old. Wore a black leather jacket.

Michael Diversey's Closed?!

Darnit. I noticed the restaurant closed. I'm a bit surprised as it was always pretty busy. Anyone know if something new is going in? I hope so. I don't like the empty spaces on Diversey right now.

    Yes, by the mere mention of saving small businesses, it happens! If you say it enough, of course it becomes the truth. As the old adage goes: "The one-eyed man is king among the blind".

Found white and tan cat

I found a short haired, white and tan cat matching that description yesterday on the 1300 block of Wellington. It was super friendly and followed me home. Clearly someone's pet because he is very well fed. I took him to Urban Vet immediately and there's no chip. I've posted online and put up signs. He's in our living room and sweet as can be.

  • Thanks! Based on pics this is not Chester or Felix, unfortunately. I've posted on Craigslist, Lost pets of Chicago, now Lost Cats of IL with a better picture. Also Reddit, Lost Pets USA and some signs on our street and at the vet. We're guessing this is an older male, with front claws. Crossing our fingers for a connection!

  • Connected with his family! Happy ending!

Just seen heading west toward Masonic on wellington wearing maroon scrub pants (45 min ago), so he may work there; or live across the street in the rehab program or very nearby.
He and the other taller guy, both in trech coats, were going around the block on foot Sun night about 9-10pm (Barry -kemore-Belmont-fletcher)and dissapeared just south of belmont on fletcher.
If you were a victim of the crime I suggest asking security at Illinois Masonic if they know the guy. -Might be transport, tech or maintenance. If he is the perp doing the crime he'll be easily id'd.
-the problem is getting the police there fast

  • I have lived in my neighborhood for most of the last 23 years, and other than my close neighbors, I couldn't tell you who "belongs" here and who does not (if we're going solely by looks and not actions). And there are fewer people (more SF homes) around here than Belmont & Seminary. I find it more than a little hard to believe that you know everyone in the neighborhood.

    You can't go anywhere anymore.
    And they want to discredit the police.
