Acadia, the latest upscale restaurant to open in the South Loop, makes its debut tonight. Located at 1639 S. Wabash Ave., this new venue looks stunning. If the pictures on their Website, blog and Facebook page are even close to accurate, you’re sure to be impressed if you pay them a visit. According to the restaurant’s blog, the name “Acadia” means was the name given to lands in a portion of the French colonial empire of New France, in northeastern North America that included parts of eastern Quebec, the Maritime provinces, and modern day Maine. The word Acadia comes “from the Arcadia district in Greece, which since classical antiquity had the extended meanings of ‘refuge’ or ‘idyllic place.’” Well, the space certainly look idyllic. They’re taking reservations for New Year’s. To take a peek at their menu, click here.
