Makisu: Making Wicker Park Less Lincoln Park

My roommates and I are excited that there's a new sushi place at Division and Hermitage -- especially since it's replaced the old Fuel space, whose food was kind of blah and drinks were way more expensive than they were worth.

Below is our e-mail discussion about the new sushi and sake lounge Makisu (1725 W. Division St.). I've abbreviated the names to protect the innocent.

Me: New sushi place, right by us! Very exciting...

E: Finally, something in the old Fuel space! Hopefully it's less douchey:)...

Me: Since they popped up at around the same time, I honestly don't know how Edge is still standing. There's never anyone in there when I walk by.

E: I know, I forget that Edge is even still there.

L: They should move over next to the Boundary. Then they'd be their own little Lincoln Park oasis. Sushi is far better than Fuel.

Makisu's soft opening is today; it officially opens Thursday, August 26.

Douche corner is dead!
Longe live Sush corner!

Nobody refers to East Villiage anymore. It's ALL Wicker Park now.

When Brewers and Chefs Meet: A Love Story

By Brandy Gonsoulin

Jesse Valenciana knew what he wanted his mole-inspired stout to taste like, but he was a cook and home brewer, not a professional brewmaster. The co-founder of ManBQue, the local men's grilling and social club, and recent author needed a...
