Brendan Sodikoff is trying to please everyone with his repurposing of the space on Hubbard and Orleans that formerly housed Dillman's and then Cocello. The new concept, rumored since late last year, includes a best of multiple Sodikoff restaurants that he's calling 3 Greens Market. The space contains a casual restaurant, coffee shop, bar, salad bar, and grab-and-go items.
Three Greens should open next month at 354 W. Hubbard St, according to Hogsalt PR. Though they didn't specify the menu, Hogsalt brass says burgers from Small Cheval, the long-rumored return of pastrami from Dillman's and goods from Bavette's bakery will be available. The new name—Hogsalt thinks good things comes in threes—refers to an 18-foot hot and cold salad bar which will feature globally-inspired items. Besides coffee, the bar will serve small-batch and bottled cocktails.
They've divided the space in two, including the coffee shop with couches where patrons can watch movies, play board games or work while sitting at communal tables. They describe the decor as a mash up of design from the 1960s and 1970s, trying to bring back that vintage rec room feel.
Sodikoff says in the release that he wanted a space for everyone's eating habits. The salads could appease a healthier lifestyle, while those burgers and fries are a bit more indulgent. Caffeine junkies can have their coffee, while those who need an alcoholic adult beverage can drink a cocktail. Looks like "La Russe" was a ruse, so check back later on for more details on 3 Greens.
