Construction work has started on Boka’s upcoming restaurant concepts in the former Southport Lanes space. Currently GG’s Chicken Shop is the first confirmed restaurant, with rumors of Sugargoat and ‘Sushi’ (Momotaro?) possibly joining the space.
From our blog post last year:
“The former Southport Lanes in Lake View will become home to three dining concepts operated by Boka Restaurant Group.
Chicago-based Boka confirmed Tuesday that it will open the restaurants next summer in the building at 3325 N. Southport Avenue. Boka has leased the property from Steve Soble, who closed the more than century-old Southport Lanes in September 2020 because of the pandemic and chose not to reopen.
Boka, confirming a report by Southport Corridor News & Events, said one of the new restaurants will be GG’s Chicken Shop, a venture helmed by chef/partner Lee Wolen.”
