LOGAN SQUARE — The Logan Square stretch of Armitage Avenue, dubbed "Chicago's other restaurant row" for all of its trendy new eateries, is getting two newcomers, including one chain restaurant.
A German sausage purveyor, promising the best gourmet sausages and sausage products in the city, is slated to open in a corner building at 3301 W. Armitage Ave., according to a sign recently posted to the window.
The sausage spot will be situated in a particularly trendy pocket of Armitage that has seen the entry of hip establishments Best Intentions, Damn Fine Coffee Bar and Ground Control in recent years.
"We'll be coming to Chicago soon! The only company specialized in the production of gourmet sausages and sausage products will soon be in Chicago. We supply you the best American and European sausages in our city — without exception! We are looking forward to welcome you at our opening," the sign reads in German.
It's unclear when the sausage spot will open. Attempts to reach the new owner were not successful.
Just west of there, Jet's Pizza is opening a new location in a former laundromat at 3510 W. Armitage Ave. The pizza chain is planning to open in early December, according to franchise owner Bryan Gilbert.
One thing is for sure: Rundown storefronts on Armitage Avenue in Logan Square, particularly along the western end, are getting snapped up quickly as gentrification moves west.
