Something new is finally heading to the original Graham Elliot space in River North. A group of former Untitled employees are moving in to open Oak & Char, a restaurant that will serve "real Midwestern food," Crain's originally reported. Look for it in as soon as six weeks.
New ownership, which is now its own management group, has not named a new chef yet.
When Elliot closed his first restaurant on New Year's Eve, the slimmed-down celebrity chef decried the size of the space as well as the location. Will this new concept be successful there? Stay tuned.
