How could they not open this week?!
First there was Eno (505 N. Michigan Ave., 312-944-4100), and now comes Chocolate Grape (2113 W. Division St., 773-772-3990), a Wicker Park cafe specializing in wine and chocolate.
Owners Pat Karpowski and Rehanna Leigh Grady met at the "For the Love of Chocolate" benefit in 2007, and decided to make their love for chocolate a reality. Chocolate Grape expects to open in late March, and in addition to handmade chocolates and boutique wines, look for pastries, coffee, salads and soups, as well as exotic cheese and sausage flights.
There will also be a private event room, The Truffle Box, which should be an interesting addition to the local nightlife options.
