Wicker Wire: Originally scheduled to open Summer 2016, Mahalo is opening earlier than expected. The new casual Hawaiian eatery is opening today in the former location of Wicker Park's Spanish Cava Bar, Bom Bolla, at 1501 N. Milwaukee Avenue.

Designed with a modern Hawaiian surf shack feel, Mahalo is hoping to transport you into a vacation-like atmosphere. Even the rooftop deck will include picnic tables and string lighting to help set the mood. The two-story building includes a 2,500 square foot bar and dining area on the first floor, another full service beach bar on the second floor and the 1,000 square foot rooftop patio. 

The lunch & dinner menu will offer an entertaining array of Polynesian-Asian fusion cuisine served with a modern flair including Pupu, Poke, Yakitori, Salad and Large Plate options. They will also be including Spam Meatballs. Seriously, there are multiple dishes with Spam in them. The drink menu will include Mai Tai cocktails made with rum and tropical fruit juices, as well as beer and wine selections. On the weekends, Mahalo will feature a brunch menu.

The official opening date is Wednesday June 1st, 2016 at 3:00pm. See you there.
