That's pretty interesting. Anywhere online with that? Had never heard it before.
I don't think it was ever online, but it used to be mentioned in scrolling text across the bottom of the TV screens in the restaurant.

Jose Lagoa is the name of Cafe Iberico's owner. I think Choxy is Spanglish slang for "foxy chica."

That's hilarious - How long ago were those there anyway?

^ Yeah if the LLC is called Choxy then that would be too much of a coincidence. Looks like we have our answer

Love the detective work, might need to commission the forumers here to help find the car keys my wife mysteriously lost yesterday.

That could be a tough space to fill. It's not exactly in the heart of it. I bet it will go restaurant.

Oak St. keeps gaining. Michigan Ave. keeps losing.

Michigan Avenue needs more restaurants, but I have a hard time seeing it go that way, but you never know. To be honest, I kind of enjoy seeing some of the retail come in - there's a nice retail built up on Rush Street now for a little bit.

^ I disagree. Prime retail boulevards like Mag Mile should remain shopping promenades. I don't think restaurants make sense, except on side streets.

I wasn't advocating for a ton of restaurants, and don't necessarily disagree with you. I am saying there should be some more (i.e. going from say 10 restaurants to 15, not making a ton of them there).

Even the Champs-Élysées and Fifth Avenue and Avinguda Diagonal have some restaurants on them, and they're every bit as prime (if not moreso) as Michigan Avenue.

I think the way Michigan Ave has several on the second floor is a good way to do it. First, it keeps the first floor for retail and, second, the window seats for these restaurants have nice views of the Boulevard.

Yeah, true. I've always thought Chicago needed more 2nd floor eateries/bars in some areas but Michigan Avenue does have some up there that are also good.

In any case, I can't see the Chanel space going restaurant. It'll probably be taken up by another fashion brand or a jeweler, or something like a salon.

There's cool buildings on Oak Street but the one that's there now, I don't find it anything special. I kind of like the building in that rendering - it's not amazing but I like it.

When I lived at 40 East I had known for years the neighbor was doomed. All the retailers want high ceilings, elevators and barrier free entry. Sucks they couldn't save the facade

^ Wrightwood and Hermitage. Replacing a pretty handsome old factory building. Not sure why the developers didn't just do a loft conversion...
