Chef Alain Njike has teamed up with business partner (and Chicago Bears player) Israel Idonije to open this South Loop restaurant. Njike was raised in a restaurant family in Cameroon in west central Africa, trained at Ecole Maxime de Paris and has worked in Chicago at Charlie Trotter's, Nomi and most recently Park 52. He describes his fare as contemporary American with a touch of Southern and plans to serve dishes such as a savory mac 'n' cheese souffle, blackened catfish and Idonije's recipe for banana bread.
