Tex-Mex and Italian/French will be 4-Star’s Newest Southport Restaurants

4-Star Restaurant Group, parent company of Crosby’s KitchenSmoke DaddyFrasca’s Pizzeria and D.O.C. Wine Bar (and others) is expanding in Chicago’s Southport Corridor, and here is the latest update:

  • Justin’s Space. The former Justin\’s Bar & Grill space is currently gutted, and 4-Star is hoping to get in there shortly to start the construction process. The space will feature full windows from the rendering below, along with an expanded kitchen area. The name should be announced soon, and they are looking to open by fall. It will be a Tex-Mex themed restaurant along with brunch on the weekends, killer margaritas and a full tequila bar. They will be keeping the outdoor area, albeit a bit smaller.
  • Wrigleyville Dental Space  The building behind Crosby\’s Kitchen will be re-developed and is planning to open in 2017 as an adult restaurant and full bar with French and Italian cuisine. The name of the new restaurant will be Ella Elli, and will be open for dinner only.

Timings are all dependent on the permit processing from the City of Chicago for both restaurants (Justin\’s former space is currently undergoing the permitting process). More information can be found here from DNA Info Chicago.
