Bar Louie's Coming for all you Chicagoans!
I read in the Express Classifieds that Bar Louie was looking to hire servers, etc.. Is it true? Is Bar Louie coming to Chinatown/Gallery?!! I always said that was the one thing about DC that I didn't love as much as Chicago, my neighborhood bar. That was it. Please tell me I'm not dreaming!
I went to a Bar Louie in burbs of Cleveland. While the wrap I had was pretty good (although that should be judged by the fact that I was working 18 hour days on a campaign and wasn't able to eat anything until around 8pm) I'm not jumping out of my seat about this addition. It seemed like a smaller version of what's already in the area---mainly Clyde's. Similar type food if I remember with lots of beer right?
Forgive me if I don't share your excitement...the last thing that area (or any area) needs IMHO is another big chain bar/restaurant. But yeah, it's coming...opening late summer / early autumn from what I've heard. I've only been to the one in Tampa...never to any of the Illinois locations...so maybe I'm missing something.
