A new restaurant that's growing out of a series of pop-ups is coming this summer to West Town. It's called Temporis Restaurant, and they're taking over the Moku Sushi Bar space at 933 N. Ashland Ave. They applied for a liquor license earlier this week with the city.

Temporis' website described the spot as a 20-seat restaurant with eight- to 10-course tasting menus. They hope to open in July. They'll also have wine pairings and non-alcoholic options.

Evan Fullerton, who worked at 1913 Restaurant & Wine Bar in suburban Roselle, and Sam Plotnick (Les Nomades) are listed as the chefs. They tout their food as "a simple yet refined representation of the ingredients and flavors we love to work with." They're charging diners $110 per pop-up. Check out examples of their plating over here.

Harvey Plotnick was listed on the restaurant's liquor license. Messages left for the restaurant weren't immediately returned. Stay tuned for more.
