Boka Group Will Be the Latest to Uncork a Restaurant Near Wrigley Field

Katz: That’s it. Right over the sign at Wrigley: Clark and Addison.

    Boka Group Will Be the Latest to Uncork a Restaurant Near Wrigley Field
    It seems almost every major Chicago restaurant company has announced a project near Wrigley Field in recent times - even Cubs' manager Joe Maddon is opening one. So where does that leave Boka Restaurant Group, the revered company behind a parade of hits including The Girl and the Goat in the West Loop and GT Fish & Oyster in River North?

    Wrigleyville bar makeover airs on 'Bar Rescue' this weekend; owner calls experience a nightmare
    It's not often that Cubs fans and reality TV aficionados can find a show to watch together, but that may be the case with a Chicago-based episode of "Bar Rescue" airing this Sunday. But before you tune in, know that the Wrigleyville bar owner featured on the bar-makeover show is less than happy with the results.
