The Chicago Diner Opening Second Location

The classic vegan-friendly staple is opening its second location in the Windy City.

Lakeview’s most popular vegan-friendly eatery The Chicago Diner is opening its second location in Logan Square. The vegetarian hot spot has been in business since 1983 with the goal to serve meat-free food that tastes homemade. Some of The Chicago Diner’s most loved items on the menu include spicy Buffalo Style Wingz, Country Fried Staek served with rustic mashed potatoes and pesto sautéed vegetables, and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough soy shakes for dessert. The official opening date has not been released, but the restaurant hopes to start serving customers sometime in the fall.
