Latinicity won't be the only restaurant building excitement for Block 37, as the familiar name behind The Gage, The Irish Oak and Acanto plan on a summer opening for The Dearborn. Sisters Clodagh and Amy Lawless learned the family business from brother Billy Lawless, and are now embarking on their own project, a 8,000-square-foot restaurant and tavern serving upscale American fare, according to a news release.
Details are scarce, as the Lawless sisters haven't revealed executive or pastry chefs. What they did share is The Dearborn will seat 225, with a seasonal menu and a bar scene featuring classic cocktails and beers. Clodagh Lawless told Crain's that the concept will cater to the afterwork crowd, while still offering a venue for a special occasion.
The sisters signed a lease for the space more than three years ago, and the project will open in tandem with Block 37's residential tower. Stay tuned for more news from these Irish sisters.
