“Raw Bar’s closing on Clark Street to make room for WHISK.
After a 13-year run just north of Wrigley Field, Raw Bar & Grill is going away. Ownership is handing over operations to the owners of WHISK, the West Town restaurant known for its burgers, brunch, and Mexican-inspired menu.
The restaurant space will be split in two: The bar side will temporarily keep the Raw Bar name while WHISK cooks revamp the menu. Meanwhile, the dining area will morph into WHISK Wrigleyville. The Raw Bar name will remain on the bar side until the fall when WHISK will completely take over the space and do a more extensive remodel at 3720 N. Clark Street…
WHISK’s burgers come with thick patties and they’ll continue to serve them in Wrigleyville. But the Raw Bar side will get new thin-griddled burgers, along with ceviche, fish tacos, and fish and chips. Brunch will get a few new items on the WHISK side including drunken French toast.”
