Restaurant Rumor: Just Salad coming to the Southport Corridor?

Just Salad announced in early 2019 that it was opening four Chicago locations, two have which have already opened downtown. It looks like at least one more location could be in the heart of the Southport Corridor according to their tweet earlier this week.  Since retail space is scarce on Southport, the one logical option could be next to Potbelly where Paperchase was originally supposed to open.  Time will certainly tell, and we should know more as Spring progresses.  Would you welcome Just Salad to Southport?

Every single person in Chicago this weekend: “So over winter, it’s time for spring”

Me: “More snow please” ❄️❄️❄️

Taco Bell Cantina Coming Back to Wrigleyville (Yes, same location)

Update: Now Confirmed.

After years of preparing for Taco Bell at 1111 W. Addison to close and be demolished for a new development, Taco Bell Cantina – the one that serves booze, is now rumored to be returning to the ground level along with Chase Bank (both are in lease negotiations at this time). The original restaurant was torn down this week, and development will soon begin for a 4-story complex including a proposed climbing gym on the upper floors (Chase and Taco Bell and another retail space would occupy the ground level).  As we hear more we will be sure to let you know. Live Mas!
