Silver Room expands (sort of)

Eric Williams' hip accessories boutique Silver Room (1442 N. Milwaukee Ave., 773-278-7130) has been a Wicker Park staple for a number of years, and also served as sort of a hipster hangout for deejays and other nightlife industry types.

So like in the early 2000s, he opened Square One, a stylish cafeteria offering inexpensive comfort food, down the street from the boutique. Alas, it didn't last that long, but he's decided to have another go at it with a low-key juice bar tucked inside Silver Room.

Longtime owners of the South Side's venerable Soul Vegetarian (203 E. 75th St., 773-224-0104) have been working on the space for a few months, and plan to offer smoothies, teas, juices and some light vegetarian bites when it opens later this month.
