Alderman Harry Osterman confirmed the rumors on friday, confirming that Ann Sather restaurant will be coming to Edgewater. According to the Alderman's weekly update, Anne Sather will open in the space that was once Banana's Foster, which closed recently after the owner/operator encountered health issues which forced him to close. While we are sorry to see Banans Foster go, we do certainly welcome its replacement. Ann Sather's is an institution in Andersonville and Lakeview, where it operates traditional swedish restaurants.
Got a hankering for a good Chicago dog? Tried Huey's lately? My co-working, Manuel and I were out talking with Andersonville landlords last wee about the Chicago apartments that they had for rent and after some great results we decided to reward ourselves with a good dog from Huey's. If you live in Andersonville you definitelly know this place. The dog pictured came loaded with the traditional Chicago fixins, plus a load of fries and all the soda I could drink for only $5 - what a deal! Stop in to see for yourself the next time you are in Andersonville. Address: 1507 West Balmoral (between Clark and Ashland.)
