BRIDGEPORT — Pleasant House Bakery is closing, but owners plan open a second restaurant in Chicago this year.
The new beer-focused Pleasant House Pub will open in Pilsen in early June, according to the Tribune. The restaurant will feature Pleasant House's signature Royal Pies and an expanded British-inspired menu, according to a Facebook post.
The new pub will take over the former Nightwood Restaurant at 2119 S. Halsted St. The building is owned by Chicago bar and restaurant magnate Kevin Heisler.
An employee at Pleasant House who was unaware of the move and said owners Art and Chelsea Jackson are out of the country on vacation. They would not be available to comment, the employee said.
Known for its meat pies and breads, the Bridgeport bakery will close its doors in May, according to reports.
Nightwood closed in July 2015 after six years in business at 21st and Halsted streets.
