Coming This Summer to Uptown...

From "Chicago Magazine"

In June, Cynthia Oldham, one of the partners in Silver Cloud (1700 N. Damen Ave.);plans to open The Fat Cat, a 130-seat bar and grill with outdoor dining, at 4840 North Broadway (next door to Marigold). Expect the same kind of American comfort food that Wicker Parkers love at SC. “We’ll specialize in spicy fried chicken, Friday fish fries, hand-cut fries, Cuban pork belly Sammies,” says Oldham, who is teaming up with Howard Natinsky (Five Star Bar & Grill). The building was completely gutted and the interior is currently under reconstruction; expect a restoration of Uptown’s striking prewar architecture.

  1. Boy, that area north of Leland is taking off!

    We wonder why only north of Leland, though.

  2. Could it be that Broadway north of Leland is in Maryann Smith's ward, not Helen's?
    Maybe just a coincidence . . .
