Lake, serving a small four-sandwich menu, house-made chips, and sodas for carry-out or to eat-in and a small counter. It's open from 6 a.m. until 3 p.m. [EaterWire]

GOLD COAST—Hopsmith Tavern, the latest bar from Big Onion Tavern Group (Fatpour, Irish Oak, Diag) opened yesterday in the former Snuggery space at Division and Rush. As previously reported, partner Erik Baylis termed Hopsmith their "most food-centric establishment" (look over the menu here). The two-floor space has lots of gimmicks: a 1954 Volkswagen repurposed as a bar, a back bar styled as a card catalog, and a glass-enclosed keg room. [EaterWire]
