Team Behind The Fifty/50 Opens The HomeStead

When having a conversation with Greg Mohr and Scott Weiner owners of Wicker Park's The Fifty/ 50 at 2047 W. Division Street, the Bleeding Heart Bakery and Roots at 1924 W. Chicago, we stumbled upon a brand new addition to West Town: The Homestead.

In a neighborhood with few roof top decks, The Homestead will deliver. Interestingly, you can only access the space through Roots but it's worth the walk. You'll find tables made from barn doors,  a large bar, a garden where everything is edible and a rooftop outdoor deck which will seat up to 85 people including the benches around the perimeter. The space faces Chicago Avenue but is very private.

The Homestead will serve farm fresh fare and Chef John Wayne Formica will feature a seasonal menu of large and small plates.
