Shopping small on Southport Avenue

The news of Abercrombie & Fitch has been one of the biggest commenting events on our social media platforms, and one of the highest views on the blog. However, many of you have commented about chain stores taking over and that you would rather shop small. Here’s some of the favorite small businesses on Southport Avenue in Chicago. Which one is your favorite(s)?

Ella Elli’s New Menu

Construction is moving full-steam ahead for Crosby’s Kitchen’s newest restaurant in the Southport Corridor and opening date will be March 7. However unlike Crosby’s, it won’t be catering to children (so, basically no chicken fingers or hot dogs will be found on their menu).

Per Eater Chicago,

“One thing that we hear more often than not, especially at Crosby’s, is people will say ‘oh I don’t go there until after 8 o’clock, I don’t want to be there with a lot of kids there,’” Dunlay, 4 Star’s co-founder, said. “That’s why we’re opening Elli, it’s more of an adult restaurant, if you will. It’s still going to have the same great service and great food, but it’s just not going to be geared as much toward family.”

Here is a sneak peek of the menu from Eater:
