© Getty/Eater Con Todos Cocina y Cantina will offer early tastes in Fulton Market.

October 5

Fulton Market: Diners can get an early taste of one of Chicago’s most anticipated openings this month. Chef Jonathan Zaragoza (Masa Azul, El Oso) will pop up with dishes from forthcoming restaurant, Con Todo Cocina y Cantina, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday, October 19 at Publican Quality Meats. Zaragoza, whose family is behind local icon Birrieria Zaragoza in Archer Heights, will team up with lauded butcher and chef Rob Levitt (PQM) to offer his Pamburgesa (Slagel Farms beef, “guajillo-stained” bun, queso Americano, chorizo-spiced curly fries) and Zaragoza Birria (sopes, black beans, tomatillo), and Banhez Mezcal cocktails. Tickets ($16 to $18) and more details are available via Tock. Con Todo is slated to open this winter in Logan Square. An address isn’t yet available, but it should land near Diversey and Kedzie, according to a source.

River North: Chicago’s forthcoming outpost of Gordon Ramsay Burger, the city’s first restaurant from the often irate celebrity chef, has applied for a liquor license at 2 E. Ontario Street. Ramsay is taking over a former Wahlburgers at Ontario and State streets for the chain’s second U.S. location. It’s slated to open in late 2021 or early 2022.

River North: Your’s Truly, a modern martini bar and sports lounge from local restaurateur Adolfo Garcia (Diver at the Park), is slated to open this month at 613 N. Wells Street inside Found Hotel Chicago, according to a rep. Patrons can expect a cocktail menu with plays on classic drinks like Cosmos (hibiscus tea, wild berry puree, jasmine bitters, vodka), as well as a selection of familiar bar food like cauliflower wings and cheeseburgers. Stay tuned for more on this project.

Roscoe Village: New Mexican restaurant Amor y Tequila has applied for a liquor license at 2118 W. Roscoe Street, which previously housed a maternity clothing store. Though an opening date is not yet available, photos of an outdoor patio and other design details are available via Instagram.

West Loop: Caribbean-inspired restaurant and music venue Tribe Supper Club has applied for a liquor license at 1239 W. Lake Street. Operators promise a menu of Caribbean-Soul food, cocktails, live music, and a dozen VIP sections on its website.

September 28

Bucktown: Venerable Chicago dive bar and music venue Gallery Cabaret, now equipped with a new sign over the entrance, is slated to reopen in October for the first time since March 2020, operators announced on Monday via Facebook. The news comes just over a year after the death of founder Ken Strandberg, who in 1988 first opened the space as a haven for local performers and artists at 2020 N. Oakley Avenue.

Little Italy: Breakfast favorite Stax Cafe has applied for a liquor license at 1401 W. Taylor Street, joining its River West outpost in serving alcoholic beverages like mimosas and Bloody Marys. Owner Spiro Tsaldaris, who opened the restaurant with his family in 2010, has not yet returned a request for more details.

Portage Park: Popular gourmet sausage stand the Hot Dog Box is pushing back its projected opening timeframe to November for a stand-alone location at 4020 N. Milwaukee Avenue, says owner Bobby Morelli. He had originally hoped to debut in August, a year after he and daughter Brooklyn launched the restaurant inside 400-square-foot shipping container in the Boxville marketplace.

Streeterville: Kitschy retro diner Ed Debevic’s continues to build out at 159 E. Ohio Street, with a new red sign over the door that reads “Eat at Ed’s.” The original River North restaurant was razed in 2015 but former fans have seen rumors of a return start to materialize over the past few years. Operators haven’t yet gone public with a planned reopening date.

The Loop: The team behind Mediterranean boho hit Beatnik will revamp the former Cafe Bonhomme space into GoodFunk, a natural wine bar on the ground floor at 180 N. Wacker Drive next door to Beatnik’s riverside outpost, according to rep. The bar’s sign is up and a few of the interior are posted to Instagram, but an opening date is not yet available.

Wicker Park: A new venue called Champion Vines has applied for a liquor license and package goods license at 1804 N. Damen Avenue, indicating a possible wine bar or wine shop and tasting room. Champion Vines does not yet have an online footprint.

Wrigleyville: The team behind Mexican restaurant La Biznaga aims to open a second outpost in early November at 3555 N. Broadway, the former home of Wrigleyville BBQ, according to an employee. The original restaurant, which is BYOB, opened in 2016 in Irving Park.
