Yesterday we had our second meeting to provide feedback on a new licensing ordinance for shared kitchen users. I attended the City Hall meeting with Alexis and Tonya, owners of Kitchen Chicago and Splice Kitchen respectively. The ONLY reason we were at the table is due to Alderman Gene Schulter. If you ever have the pleasure of meeting Ald. Shulter, THANK HIM.
The Chicago Reader is publishing a story this week. It relates Logan Square Kitchen’s terrible difficulties in the bureaucracy of City Hall over the past year. It was not an easy decision, to decide to speak to the press. For the past year, every attorney has advised me to keep quiet, for fear of retailiatory action by the City. So this time, I didn’t ask.
