A local franchise of the national Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant chain plans to open this fall in the Church Street Plaza complex in downtown Evanston.

Crain’s Chicago Business reports the restaurant will occupy about 8,000 square feet at 1745 W. Maple Ave. under a 15-year lease.

The restaurant, known for its chicken wings bathed in 14 different sauces, could open around November and will replace Maple Avenue Gallery.

The gallery will close July 5, says Bruce A. Reid, president of Arthur Hill & Co., which developed the retail center in 2000 and controlled the gallery.

The complex includes the 18-screen Century Theatres and two other restaurants — Bravo and Chili’s.
