New 2014 Wicker Park, Bucktown Restaurants To Put On Your Radar

Michael Hamrick - Tuesday, January 07, 2014


With 2013 just days behind us, we're setting our sights on the new Wicker Park and Bucktown area eateries heading our way. So who are we really looking forward to in 2014?

Brendan Sodikoff's New Pizza Place - 1732 N. Milwaukee Avenue. Cafe Con Leche closed in 2013 and a new pizza-by-the-slice spot may just be taking its place.

Cheesies Pub & Grub - Voted the best grilled cheese in America, Cheesie's is opening another location in Wicker Park plus they're adding a bar called Whiskey Business and a poutine bar. A rooftop deck is also in the works at 1365 N. Milwaukee Avenue.

Paul Kahan (Big Star)/One Hospitality -  New Spot in Cipolina Space - Cipolina closed up shop quietly in 2013 and the team behind Big Star and the Violet Hour were quick to secure the space just steps away at 1543 N. Damen Avenue. Plans are also in the works to expand Big Star this year.

Rick Bayless's Wicker Park Resto - Similar to Xoco but with a bar program and larger space. This new spot is planned for the previous location of Salud at 1471 N. Milwaukee Avenue. Their target date is April 2014.

Stan's Doughnuts - Opening the location formerly Skewerz, and directly across the street from Glazed and Infused, LA-based Stan's Doughnuts. They were anticipating a Fall 2013 opening so our guess would be 1st Quarter of this year.  

The Winchester - Technically located in Ukrainian Village at 1001 N. Winchester, The Winchester will offer and all-day menu serving sandwiches and salads and will start bright an early with a breakfast menu. The best part? The former chef of Tavernita is heading up this spot. Hoping to open last Fall, The Winchester should be opening very soon.

In addition to these, there are a bunch of new coffee shops opening early this year in Wicker Park including Le Colombe and Intelligentsia.

Many of these openings have been delayed. So we'll keep you posted.
