Pop-up organizer Derek Berry detailed even more of what’s in store in an interview with Chicagoeater.com.

According to that interview: “Berry said no one’s guessed where the pop-up will take place and it will be a surprise in “the heart of Wicker Park.” One clue is that they’ll use the space’s existing liquor license. The lease has been signed.”

Berry also reveals that should the pop-up prove successful it could lead to a permanent restaurant.
