    Looks like a new ramen place will be coming to River North. It will be taking over the former Imperial Lamian space on Hubbard & State. Can't find much more other than the name might be QRamen, and it's registered to an address in Chinatown.

    Coming soon?

    Tannour Shawarma & Bakery

    Near my house, lots of parking, looked big, spacious, clean. Order at the counter, lots of tables, big menu including pizza with a good looking prominently placed pizza oven on view.

    Mini pies, ground meat with spices and pine nuts fantastic. Unfortunately that was the only item, among the many we ordered, that was worth a whistle.

    Shawarma on hummus, blah. Dry chicken shawarma, bland slightly grainy hummus. The brides chicken shawarma bowl was run though the de-flavoring machine, salad simply undressed veg. Zatar flatbread tasty, though there their idea of zartar is simply a few random sprigs of thyme, only.

    Service friendly, prices on the slightly high side of reasonable, and speedy to the table.

    All in all disappointment, though Tannour has only been open short while and will hopefully get on the food with flavor track.

    After 47 years on Rush Street, Pippin’s Tavern is turning a corner — literally. The Irish pub, which closed in June 2020, will reopen in a much large space — with a kitchen — inside the former Devon Seafood + Steak at 39 E. Chicago Avenue in mid- to late-September.

    Pippin’s Tavern, once a simple place on Rush Street, gets reborn in style. The menu is no longer hotdogs.

    Michelin-starred chef José Andrés is opening his first speakeasy this summer in River North, as part of the renowned chef’s first foray into Chicago. The yet-to-be-named, underground bar is one of five establishments Andrés and his company, ThinkFoodGroup, are opening in Chicago this year. The first, Café By The River, opened earlier this month on the river level of the new Bank of America Tower, which is going up at 110 N. Upper Wacker Drive.

    December 10 is the official opening date for both Bazaar Meats and Bar Mar, located inside Bank of America’s new Chicago headquarters near the Lyric Opera of Chicago. Both are partnerships with the famous Gibsons Restaurant Group.

    Driving on North Ave. this afternoon and noticed that "The Black Barrel Tavern" painted on the wall of the long vacant Old Town Social space at 455 W. North Ave. Logo is the same as the restaurant at 1601 W. Madison so looks like it may be a second location for them.

    Edit: Connfirmed as second location... https://whatnowchicago.com/west-loops-t ... -location/

    Bridgeport’s Ramova Theater is on its way back, in the midst of costly a renovation. It may once again be the center of a Chicago neighborhood.

    The adjoining Ramova Grill is being remade too. It opened when the theater opened and since the 1950s was owned and run for generation by the Gertos family until closing in 2012. The new place will be operated by sixth-generation Bridgeport native Kevin Hickey, an accomplished chef who runs the nearby Duck Inn.

    A vacant building on the north side of Wheeling's Restaurant Row may soon see some activity.

    The entrepreneurs behind a Chicago restaurant and brewery called District Brew Yards want to open a second location at 700 N. Milwaukee Ave. That's the 2.8-acre site of the former Ram Restaurant & Brewery, which closed in January 2019.
