There's plenty going on in Andersonville these days, with two major openings on the horizon:
Big Jones (5347 N. Clark St.) will offer creative, contemporary Southern cuisine with an emphasis on local and organic products. And the beverage menu will include classic cocktails, a mid-sized wine list and espresso bar service. Look for it in the spring.
And opening any day now, according to Metromix, is traditional Mexican spot La Cocina de Frida (5403 N. Clark St., 773-271-1907) going into the old Angel's space. As reported here first, chef Pedro Angel took his game to Rustik (2515 N. California Ave., 773-235-0002) in Logan Square, where he's partnering up with Tim Leahy for modern American comfort food and his famous Latin-focused brunch.
