What started with one restaurant and a cell-phone booth is quickly growing into one of Chicago’s hottest restaurant empires. The Boka Group, which currently owns Boka, Perennial and Landmark (all of which always have excellent offers on Foodie) and will be opening the Girl & The Goat with Stephanie Izard in the next few weeks (fingers crossed!), recently took over the River North space that housed Tizi Melloul. Boka Group co-owner Kevin Boehm told Chicago mag’s Dish last week that they’ve always “loved this location, and so we were always interested if the space ever came up. We are still working on what we are doing there conceptually.” So there’s no news on what sort of restaurant it’ll be, who will helm the kitchen or when it’ll open, but we’ll keep you posted as we get news.
