This could be quite a project. One of the hottest hospitality teams is teaming up with one of the most cutting-edge cocktail programs in one of the most prime restaurant locations in Chicago. Matt Eisler and Kevin Heisner (Trencherman, Nightwood, Bangers & Lace), along with Ben Pritzker and Ben Lurie (The Barrelhouse Flat) have signed a lease at 806 W. Randolph, also known as restaurant row. The space is in the same building as Au Cheval and the forthcoming Oon, Girl & the Goat is across the street.
There are few details at this time. The 2500 square-foot space will house a casual eatery and bar. Eisler says they're "approaching the neighborhood as a community, not just a dining destination." Look for an authentic concept in the summer.
