Joe Moore, Alderman of Chicago's 49th Ward ad...

This Friday, travel south of the border without leaving Rogers Park. Follow Me on Friday to the newest addition to Morse Avenue’s burgeoning restaurant scene–South of the Border at 1416 W. Morse. Join me tomorrow (Friday, February 23rd), from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m., for a complementary sampler plate of arepas, Cuban sandwiches and empanadas. Wash them down with a complimentary beer, wine, or the house specialty–a margarita. Owners Antoinio and Maribel Diaz will welcome you with warm Latin hospitality. They have more than 10 years of restaurant and bar experience and are very excited to achieve their lifelong dream of owning and operating their own restaurant. South of the Border is also known for its chicken jibarito sandwich, which comes with a side of fries, and the picadillo Cubano, which can best be described as a plate of Cuban comfort food. Cap off your dinner with a bunuelos, a generous plate of fried doughnut fritters lightly sprinkled with sugar and accompanied with a cup of raspberry sauce. South of the Border is definitely a place you want to be this Friday night! Follow Me on Friday is one of my efforts to encourage my constituents to sample some of the 49th Ward’s finest restaurants, pubs, businesses and festivals. About once or twice a month on my Facebook page, I post the name and location of a local restaurant, pub, business or festival where I’ll be hanging out after work on Friday. The establishment offers specials for all my Facebook followers and their friends. It’s a great opportunity for you to check out one of the fine local 49th Ward businesses you may not have visited before. Previous Follow Me on Friday locations include Ethiopian Diamond II, 7537 N.

    For Chelsea Rectanus, 30, owning a used bookstore is 'as great as the romance would lead you to believe'
    click to enlarge Pretty much every morning when I wake up, I try to remember my dreams right away, and then gather myself and figure out where I am mentally for the day ahead. It always starts with: "OK, what do we do today? You own a bookstore.

Because the traction company property line was the northern boundary, the houses on the south side of the 1700 block of Albion have some of the longest lots in Chicago, 180 feet long.

    Republishing this with a new historic image I just found! I've written a number of posts about collections of homes planned, designed and built by early developers in the neighborhood. These range from a few identical cottages to more complex arrangements of alternating designs.

Follow Me on Friday to the West Ridge portion of the 49th Ward and welcome a new addition to our ward’s restaurant scene–El Garcia at 7517 N. Western (just south of Howard). Join me at El Garcia this Friday, February 2nd, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m., for some complementary flautitas and quesadillas. Wash them down with a free margarita, beer, wine or soft drink. El Garia’s is owned by the same family behind Lincoln Square’s popular Garcia’s Restaurant, which has been operating for nearly 30 years. Oscar Garcia and his brother, Lenny, who are the sons of the original Garcia’s owner, are managing this location for the family. The Mexican eatery is located at the spot of the former Swiss Pasteries Bakery. The Garcia family purchased the property a few years ago with an eye toward opening a second restaurant. After extensive interior renovations that transformed the bakery into a sit-down restaurant, the family opened El Garcia last spring. El Garcia receives excellent reviews on Yelp–an average of 4.5 stars–with people raving about the spicy red salsa that arrives at the table with warm crispy tortilla chips. I can personally testify to the excellent guacamole made with cilantro and sweet onions. And I highly recommend the chorizo burrito suizo, served on a colorful pottery plate. This is one Follow Me on Friday event you won’t want to miss! Follow Me on Friday is one of my efforts to encourage my constituents to sample some of the 49th Ward’s finest restaurants, pubs, businesses and festivals.

  • Sorry live but I often have eaten in the places you mentioned which are good, THEN ate at Bayless' new place.
    He's off the charts fantastic.
    I never knew chicken could taste like the chicken he made.
    Incredible.

  • Jeffrey Littleton Sheridan Park Neighbors Administrator

    Payless deserves a lotta cf credit for ginning up interest in regional Mexican fine dining.
    I've been to his smaller place think it's called Xoco or something like that... deliciousness.
