A lot of news has come out of One Off Hospitality this summer, the restaurant group behind Blackbird, Avec, The Publican and The Violet Hour. Now comes word of their latest restaurant addition, called Dove's Luncheonette.
The "Mexican-inspired soul food" concept, led by chef de cuisine Dennis Bernard, will take over the old Cipollina space mid-August at 1543 N. Damen Ave., just north of where Big Star currently stands. This will be the eighth sit-down establishment for the perennial James Beard award-nominated restaurant group.
But forget all that ... the music! They announced the opening via a USB cassette mixtape, which I have to say, is filled with some groovy choices of 60s and 70s Chicago soul.
