LOGAN SQUARE — Good Fortune, the seafood pop-up that took over the former Sink | Swim, served its last customers Saturday, months earlier than originally planned.
But it's an expansion — not a lack of business — that forced the move.
The owners, Charles Welch and Andrew Miller, are in the middle of "finalizing negotiations" on a new, permanent location for the restaurant, with a goal of opening in early 2018.
Details on the new location are scarce. The owners, former partners at Honey's in the West Loop, aren't ready to disclose the location just yet, and a spokeswoman couldn't immediately say whether the new location will be in Logan Square.
"We were fortunate enough to be offered the Sink | Swim space for a temporary pop-up, and we were able to test out some great ideas and dishes while on the hunt for a more permanent spot," Andrew Miller said in a statement.
"After experimenting with the culinary and cocktail programs, we’re so pleased to bring an expanded and more complete version of Good Fortune to Chicago even sooner than we expected."
The Good Fortune pop-up, which opened at 3213 W. Armitage Ave. in the middle of August, served an array of seafood dishes such as oysters and marinated shrimp from carts typically found in dim sum restaurants. The owners told Chicago Magazine they were planning to stay there until the end of the year.
Until the new location is up and running, Welch and Miller will be contributing to various dinners and events around town. The pair will also be focused on developing their newly-founded hospitality group, Out To Lunch Hospitality, which "plans to roll out news on additional bar and dining concepts to open in the next several weeks," according to the release.
More details on the new location, including an opening date and menu, will be released in the coming weeks.
