Western suburb to get Soul

Look for buzz to happen in Clarendon Hills—like it did when Fahrenheit opened in St. Charles—when a high-profile duo brings Soul (1 Walker Ave.) to the western suburbs this winter.

Howard Davis—one of the principals behind Gioco, Red Light, Le Lan and Opera—teams up with Bill Kim (who is the executive chef at Le Lan) for this concept they're calling "refined American regional cuisine." Soul's executive chef will be Karen Nicolas (formerly of Gramercy Tavern in NYC and the Charlie Palmer Restaurant Group), who's also planning a budget-friendly bar menu with all items under $15. The restaurant will be open seven days a week for lunch and dinner service.
