While not a downtown establishment, the coolness of Hilary’s Urban Eatery has swanked up the corner of Division and Greenview on the near northwest side for years. But according to this Metroblogging Chicago post from today, a sign on the door at HUE says that the last day of full service will be February 27 and that, at some uncertain point and in some uncertain location somewhere nearby, they’ll reopen–all of which sounds to me like a hedgy way to say “maybe”. And they were just featured on Chicago Tonight, too (so I’ve heard, I haven’t bothered to watch since WTTW dumped Bob Sirott, have you?)
East Ukranian Village without HUE? What next? State Street without Marshall F-…oh wait…damn.
