Reservations are online for a new pop-up that debuts on Friday inside the Sink|Swim space in Logan Square. Good Fortune is from two team members who launched Honey’s — one of 2016’s biggest restaurant openings. The pop-up at 3213 W. Armitage Ave. will last through the end of the year and aims to present a la carte seafood in new ways by avoiding cliches such as seafood towers, according to a news release.

Executive chef Charles Welch and creative director Andrew Miller left Honey’s and have been searching for a permanent location for a new restaurant. They’ve formed a new company: Out To Lunch Hospitality. Sink|Swim’s owners at the Scofflaw Group offered them the space as Scofflaw determines how the will replace the old restaurant. The pop-up will only be open for dinner, despite the new company’s name.

Welch and Miller are heavy hitters with extensive fine-dining experience. They won’t say why they left the West Loop and Honey’s. But over at Good Fortune they’ll have dim sum-style seafood carts and food that’s inspired by many countries with Greek, Japanese, and Spanish influences. The most-expensive item is $28, and that’s key for a neighborhood like Logan Square where they don’t expect to pay West Loop prices. They’ll also have a cocktail cart and a late-night bar program six days a week.

Check out the opening day menu below. Good Fortune debuts on Friday at 3213 W. Armitage Ave. Reservations can be made via Reserve.
