“NeoCon is where the design world comes together – three days of pure energy, bursting with new thinking, new resources, and new products.”
It takes place next week at the Merchandise Mart, but Metropolis magazine is giving attendees a nudge and a guide to expand their new thinking with new resources and new dining “products,” to get out of downtown and into the neighborhoods, with its Taste of the Town dining guide.
The guide runs the gamut from haute cuisine to hot dog stands and dive bars.
For lunch, Metropolis suggests:
- the new American cuisine of Lula Café (top photo);
- the Latin/Asian fusion of Belly Shack (photo above); and
- the contemporary American cuisine of Longman & Eagle (photo right).
Apparently Metropolis was overwhelmed by the drink options in Logan Square since none made their list.
I can think of others that the list should have included, how about you?
Let’s expand the list and invite attendees to taste Logan Square. (Be expansive; feel free to include places technically outside of community/neighborhood boundaries, but typically thought of as Logan Square.)
And for this crowd, think decor and concept as well as cuisine.
Might I suggest a comment such as:
“Might we suggest ____ for lunch/dinner/drinks. The design of its ____ is particularly noteworthy, and its ____ is not to be missed,” or…,
well, you get the idea.
