With plans for her upcoming eatery ripening quickly, Alpana Singh has announced some details about her highly anticipated Chicago venue.
Construction is underway at the Michigan Avenue location, located across the street from the Art Institute, Singh told Eater Chicago.
The name of the restaurant is Seven Lions and Singh says it will be an "American clubhouse," featuring "comfortable and approachable" updated American cuisine and a largely American wine list.
She told the foodie site she hopes to open the location later this year or by early next year.
The restaurant will hold a large center bar with a separate dining room, a sidewalk patio and private event space.
Rumors of the restaurant sprouted more than two years ago after the master sommelier announced she was parting ways with Lettuce Entertain You and resigned her post as host of WTTW's popular "Check, Please" program.
The project is in conjunction with Bistronomic owners Matt Fisher and John Ward.
