City Tavern to open in Grace O’Malley space this May

 Grace O’Malley's was located at 1416 S. Michigan Ave.
According to Chicago magazine’s online Dish column, Kendal Duque and the folks that own Chicago Firehouse and WabashTap, will open City Tavern a “18th-century tavernesque” at 1416 S. Michigan Ave. The menu is being created by Kendal Duque, the chef at Chicago Firehouse, according to Dish editors Penny Pollack and Graham Meyer.

According to Dish, the bar and dining areas have been “united.” Kind of a fancy way of saying they knocked down a wall! The atmosphere is supposed to evoke Revolutionary-era inns of New England.

Dish says the menu will be small, but focused on “ingredients,” according to  Duque. The ingredients will be “simple” and “elegant.”

Grace O’Malley’s closed in February 2011.

When we learn more details, including the exact opening date, we’ll post here.
