Wow Bao plans a new post on Clark near Diversey to aid in the quest for steamy, hot buns in Lakeview and Boystown.

Signs were up in the storefront's windows signifying the eminent arrival of Asian-style dumplings and starchy, sticky buns, as a Lettuce Entertain You spokesman said they plan to open in mid-November.

Wow Bao will fill the former Red Mango frozen yogurt stand at 2806 N. Clark St. There are four Wow Baos in downtown Chicago. There are also Wow Bao stands at two Major League Baseball stadiums: U.S. Cellular Field and inside Oriole Park at Camden Yards in Baltimore. It's also one of the better places to eat inside O'Hare International Airport.
