Here are some recent restaurant/bar openings and closings.
The Stretch – A sports bar takes the spot of Tryst in Wrigleyville. While there’s not much new you can say about a sports bar in Wrigleyville, we did like the cleanliness of the place and the mostly bar food menu looks somewhat appealing – which is more than you can say for most of the places along Wrigley Row (Clark Street). They have been open with a limited menu for a few days, with a grand opening this weekend.
In other Wrigleyville news, the Rockit Bar & Grill that’s going in the former Tuscany space on Clark/Waveland is still supposed to be ready in time for opening day (Monday). We’ll believe it when we see it.
Chaos Theory Cakes and Confections and Suzi’s Tea & Café – The bad news is both of these stores (which were right next to each other on Lincoln Avenue, is anything left on that street?) are no more. The good news is you can get pretty much anything they had at Chaos Theory from Bleeding Heart Bakery, since they were run by the same people. And you can still order from Suzi’s Web site, teavision.com. Ain’t the Internet grand?
