On Thursday, Longman & Eagle expanded its dining area to include outdoor seating on its Schubert Street side. Chicago weather has cooperated this weekend to provide an enjoyable atmosphere for diners.
I find it a bit odd that they chose to use the Schubert Street/residential side of their building. Possibly more enjoyable for diners away from the Kedzie Avenue and bus traffic, but a potential conflict with the residents on Schubert. On Kedzie Avenue, though, it would have had an agglomeration effect: the potential to enhance and benefit from further enlivening that strip with the other outdoor dining options. What do you think?
Across the street from Longman & Eagle, beautiful iris grow in a beautiful parkway garden on Schubert St.
