A Black woman-owned and vegetarian-friendly restaurant opens near the new Salt Shed concert venue? And it refers to itself as a “speakeatery?”
With an ownership team made up of local entrepreneurs from backgrounds of all types, 1308 Chicago is a melting pot of ideas and experiences.
The menu from Chef Brooks Hart (Little Goat Diner) includes fresh ricotta agnolotti, brick chicken, carrots and grits, plus ribs of corn slathered with lime, mayonnaise and Reggiano.
The cocktail menu brings to mind the Prohibition with its old fashions, whiskey sours and gin concoctions.
1308 Chicago opened in June 2022.
