If you have been anxiously waiting for the next concept from the Kalish family to open, your wait is almost over. A business license was issued yesterday for Longacre Chicago/ Longacre Pizza Box at 1309 W. Wilson and they passed the city's inspection. The website is partially up, with a cool video of pizza being prepared in the background hinting at what to expect in the space. The branding leads us to believe that "Longacre" will fill the former Baker & Nosh spaces at 1303, 1305, and 1307 with a dine-in concept. The 1309 W. Wilson is space reserved specifically for the carry-out "Longacre Pizza Box" with a cozy dine-in area. Once we get an official opening date for Longacre Pizza Box, we will pass it along!
It's an exciting time in retail on Wilson Avenue for sure.
