Despite the dropoff in locations from six to two of the local brunch-spot chainOrange, Andrew Klemen is opening another restaurant, DNA Info reports. This one is a far different concept: It'll be called Range and focus grass-fed free-range meats, cheeses, and craft beers in the old Webster Street Cafe space on 1119 W. Webster.
Although Klemen is still seeking zoning approval, including for a possible sidewalk cafe, other details of the concept are more concrete. Besides the meats and artisanal cheeses, look for flatbreads and seasonal items and both lunch and dinner. Klemen's lawyer called it a "neighborhood restaurant" and hopes to differentiate it from louder DePaul bars in the area to comfort other residents. Don't expect cornhole.
