Just when things seemed to be all quiet on the Scott Harris front, we discovered that the Francesca's empire is at it again. Harris has decided to close Francesca's Pizzeria Napoletana in Lincoln Park and is currently looking for a new site for the restaurant in Little Italy. It is still undecided if the menu will remain the same as the original spot, but Harris does intend to continue serving Neapolitan style pizza in Chicago. The new restaurant is slated to reopen sometime this year, possibly in the fall.
As for the casual meatball spot, The Ballroom, that was slated to open in February, don't expect to see that in the very near future. Although it's a concept Harris is still considering, no plans have been set at this time. We will continue to keep you updated, as we are pretty certain, there is more for Scott Harris to conquer in Little Italy.
