Cheesie's Pub & Grub was selected by Esquire Magazine earlier this year as America's Favorite Grilled Cheese. And, first reported, by Our Urban Times, "The Most Life Changing Grilled Cheese in America" will be opening another location in Wicker Park at 1365 N. Milwaukee Avenue; directly across the street from Emporium Arcade.

The plans not only include an additional location for Cheesie's Pub & Grub. Owner Chris Johnston will also be incorporating a bar into this location as well called Whiskey Business which will offer a poutine bar and up to 20 choose-your-own toppings. After choosing your type of french fry (sweet potato, shoe string, steak cut etc), diners will select from a variety of meat options (chicken, beef, sloppy joe), veggies and sauces.

In addition to the poutine bar, the menu will include an "infused burger", pasta and salads. Johnston plans on adding brunch and naming it The Breakfast Club in keeping with the 80's 90's theme.

Plans for the restaurant/bar combo include a rooftop patio which can accommodate up to 120 people. Johnston intends on showing movies on the rooftop in warmer months. Movies will also include a focus on the 80's-90's and include favorites like: Ferris Bueller's Day Off, The Goonies and Risky Business. 

Look for Cheesie's and Whiskey Business to open this Spring. Target date is April 2014.
