Old Irving Park has quickly become the destination of choice for some of the most interesting new food and bev concepts in the city. It's clear these restaurant entrepreneurs see Old Irving Park as a hidden gem, an established neighborhood filled with untapped customers.

Bowtruss Coffee Roasters: 

Because drinking Starbucks is so 2004. This coffee upstart has major expansion plans in the Chicago area. They'll be a 10 minute walk from Basecamp SFH.

Lou Malnati's:

Feed a hungry family of six, no prob. Or just six hungry late night revelers. Opening soon right next to Bowtruss.

Eris Cider House:

Eris will be Chicago's first cider brewing house when it opens later this year or early next. They're moving into a great old building right on Irving Park, about a 10 minute walk from Basecamp SFH.

Cochinita Taco Co:

To not like tacos is simply un-American. Yes we see the irony in that statement. Thankfully, owners at BasecampSFH will have a top tier taco option in the 'hood.

Old Irving Brewing:

After having one too many at Old Irving Brewing, remember to have the Uber stop at Lou Malnati's on the way home to Basecamp SFH. This is a judgement free zone.


Do hippies still play music during lunch time? We hope so.


They make shopping for booze a learning experience you will definitely soon forget.


Finally, in Illinois, a reason to like something...anything, from Wisconsin.

Not new in Old Irving Park, but still incredible:

Community TavernBread + WineSmoque

And then of course, let us not forget the all time original great, Sabatino's.
