Duffy Reveals Name For West Loop Resto

Way back in July, Curtis Duffy made a shocking announcement that he was leaving his post as chef de cuisine at the now-shuttered Avenues at the Peninsula Chicago to open his own restaurant.

At that time, and the months following, he only disclosed a few details about his new project, including that it would open next spring in the West Loop. He also told the Chicago Tribune he's aiming for "food that will be more refined. We're going to pull back just a bit and push forward at the same time. We want to have a bit more control with the food, and push forward in terms of flavor combination."

He's had us waiting on pins and needles for all these months without even giving a hint of the name or exact location.

But now that's about to change.

Late Monday morning, he revealed the name to be Grace.

We'll be looking forward to updates in the next coming months, as he continues to "source the highest-quality ingredients" to build his menu. We'll just have to wait a little longer for that exact location . . .
