Just up the street from Logan Square Latin American brunch/lunch/dinner staple Cafe Con Leche (D'Noche at night) will be a tavern concept from the same ownership. Slated to open this summer, The Harding Tavern, from owner Esam Hani, will be yet another drinking and grubbing option in the exploding neighborhood. Ownership and representatives have attempted to keep the project under wraps for many months.
Cafe Con Leche at 2714 N. Milwaukee is not to be confused with Cafe Con Leche at 1732 N. Milwaukee. Hani was once a partner in that project, according to a staffer there, but they parted years ago. Hani and his representatives have spent months declining requests to divulge details on The Harding Tavern, but now a website and Facebook page have hit the interwebs. The Facebook page describes it as "beer, cocktails, and good food" and a "timeless neighborhood tavern." Will it have a Latin theme too? Stay tuned.
