Apparently that hip stretch of Milwaukee Avenue in Logan Square lacks a late-night burger joint. That's the void the folks behind Small Fry hope to fill, dishing out what the owners are calling elevated fast-food items. Look for an opening in early April at 2491 N. Milwaukee Ave., reported DNAinfo.
The seasonings on the triple-fried fries sound like the will slay the munchies, with Doritos' Cool Ranch, cheddar dust, as well as Japanese ramen and togarashi flavors on tap. Maybe folks can do a poutine crawl, as Q-Tine is also open late right down the street.
Griddled-double patties will be the norm for the burgers. The restaurant's owned by Egan Quinn, who spent a stint in the front of the house at River North's Bohemian House.
The Radler recently closed their late-night restaurant inside a restaurant, DAS Kebab. So besides the aforementioned Q-Tine, those stumbling out of establishments like The Rocking Horse and The Owl are limited when it comes to nocturnal dining. That's why Mexican food carts servicing folks waiting in line at Slippery Slope frequently pop up. Small Fry, which has a logo reminiscent of old Japanese monster movies, will stay open until at least 2 a.m.
