Food beat: New restaurant opens as election closes
Just before the polls closed Tuesday, Amy Morton and Nicole Pederson's new Evanston restaurant, Found Kitchen and Social House, opened for business.
Eater Chicago describes the bistro, in the Chicago Avenue space downtown formerly occupied by Gio, as eclectic and rustically designed, featuring "vintage pieces—couches, tables, lights, antler chandeliers and more."
The menu -- see it in full below -- features a mix of small plates, sandwiches and a short list of entrees.
The Evanston Review says the place also has a social benefit angle -- "hiring homeless employees to help give them a chance to achieve stability and become productive members of the community."
