Seafood. Raw Bar. Absinthe. Perfection in Wicker Park
Updated 7-17-12: Although hoping to open the week of July 13th, the team behind The Savoy is saying they will open by the end of July; and possibly even as early as this week.
The Savoy (Seafood-Raw Bar- Absinthe) is coming to 1408 N. Milwaukee Avenue in the space formerly La Fonda del Gusto. Behind the concept: owner/operator Ricky Moore and chef Brian Greene, whose résumé includes Tramonto's Steak & Seafood,
and two restaurants in Highland Park: Abigail's American Bistro and M Restaurant, where he was most recently the executive chef.

According to Time Out Chicago's overview, Wicker Park's newest upscale eatery will combine a sizable bar in the back of the space, a raw bar and dining area.
The raw bar menu will include: the oysters, ceviche, geoduck clams and more. Seafood dishes will continue to be the focus in the dining room although non-seafood entrees will also be available.
