    No bone, no Gary.

    We “ate” an in-car Raising Cane pandemic lunch at the Harlem outlet about a year ago. Two bites in on the flaccid flavor void poultry punishment was tossed and we went to Culver’s down the street.

    I don’t intend to waste food or $ again.


    Hard not to respect Culver's quality control, especially after seeing what slides by in other places.

Yelp shows Hideaway as permanently closed. A web search didn't result in any information about the new place so I'm not sure if it's just a name change or new ownership.


    Got a better look at the new sign, its called "Za Bunker", not "Pizza Bunker".

    Driving through Highwood today, I noticed there is a Noon-O-Kebab opening on the footprint where Bertucci's once was located. It appears geared toward take-out rather than eat-in, though the space is still being built out.

    The entertainment lounge in the same location as Jane's Bowling Alley is no more. Their name was scraped off the brick.

    HIGHWOOD, IL — The developer of a mixed-use development completed last year on Green Bay Road in Highwood sold it this month for $11.29 million to a Chicago-based firm, the broker of the deal announced.

    The ground floor of the 33-unit apartment building at 246 Green Bay Road is currently leased to PVR Dental, doing business as The Smilelist, and is the first suburban location of the Persian restaurant Noon-O-Kabab.

    The former Symphony's space on Central St in Evanston next to Independence Park will become DeSalvo's Pizza per the papering on the windows. I hadn't seen this preview from 3 weeks ago which provides background on the owners of this upcoming NY-style slice spot.

    Hi,

    According to facebook, Edwardo's in Oak Park has closed.

    Visited their website to find there may only be two locations left. At this point, I would call in advance to verify they are still in business.
