Dining Deliciousness Heads to Damen - Division

1951 W. Division Street Wicker Park


Updated May 23, 2013- Wicker Park

We reported last December that a new Middle Eastern restaurant was in the works for Division Avenue in the former home of Habitat and last week we noticed work was underway for Shawarma Garden. The details are finally forthcoming about Wicker Park's newest Middle Eastern eatery.

According to a report published yesterday, owner Mary Anne Mubayed will be bringing her family's "secret" recipes to Wicker Park. Approximately 25 menu items will be available that will offer affordable and generous portions and the new eatery will offer seating for 30.

Take out and delivery will also be available. The location seems to work well with the other locations already in the neighborhood offering Middle Eastern fare that will not only be easily accessible to Wicker Park residents but East Village, Ukrainian Village and Humboldt Park as well.

And who doesn't love the fact that you can access Asian, Middle Eastern, Mexican and Russian fare right on the corner of Damen and Division?


Look for Shawarma Garden to open at 1951 W. Division Street in early July.

Dining Deliciousness Heads to Damen and Division

December 15 2012 - Wicker Park

The corner of Damen & Division in Wicker Park has just gotten a whole lot more interesting... and delicious. MAK's Chinese Cuisine - 1924 W. Division Street - has encountered a few construction delays but should be opening any day.


The Red Square Cafe- Lounge is looking to open later this month at 1916 W. Division with Russian-American small plates and specialty cocktails. And don't forget about the spa and bed & breakfast.


And right across the street? Middle Eastern Cuisine is heading to 1951 W. Division Street; the space formerly the home of Habit We don't have any information on this brand new eatery but are excited about this new location. As soon as we have additional information, we'll be sure to let you know.


And just West of Damen? Takito Kitchen is moving in to the former home of Sabor Saveur at 2013 W. Division Street. Word on the street is that it will be Mexican.

All I can say is I'm glad I've renewed my gym membership.
