A few months ago everyone was making a fuss about Donald Trump putting his name on his tower (above). Analogue, a bar/restaurant in Logan Square, decided to jump on it and put his name on their storefront, which up til that point had remained nameless (below).

I spotted this sign in the pedway level of Block 37 and had to do a bit of research. According to Eater, Richard Sandoval is opening two restaurants inside Block 37. One is a big huge Latin-themed food hall with 11 food stations and 350 seats. I’m assuming the “Express” one, which is the sign I saw, is for a faster version of it. It’s where the old Beard Papa used to be.
