I was surprised to hear that the polarizing L'epicerie (either you loved it or you hated it) on Vanderbilt near DeKalb closed! A friend and neighbor who knows the owner of the space said he's curious to know what we'd like to see there. (He's thinking a restaurant-type place open from 8am-1am -- maybe a new Grand 275-type joint?) This is a rare opportunity to have a say, so leave your requests here! I'll have my friend direct the owner here for suggestions.
I only went in once to get a sandwich, years ago. I did hear that they started serving delicious dinners, but I never went in to try.
