CHICAGO — A new restaurant is aiming to open in Fulton Market next spring, and the men behind it are no strangers to Chicago’s fine dining.

Chef Curtis Duffy and Michael Muser — who left three-star Michelin restaurant Grace in a partnership dispute in 2017 plan to open Ever at 1330 W. Fulton Market.

The restaurant will have two 12- to 15-course tasting menus. One will have a focus on vegetables. The other will focus on seafood and various protein.

“At Ever, the guest does not march to our rhythm,” Duffy said in a press release. “Instead, the restaurant watches over each individual table and adjusts its cadence to the guest. Every phrase is smooth and delivered precisely — a perfect match to each diner’s pace and preferences.”

Muser told the Chicago Tribune that the duo feels a need to make this restaurant even better than Grace.

“We will never ever stop striving for the ultimate experience, no matter how many hours of the day that takes, no matter the sacrifices required,” Duffy said in the release. “We will drive to elevate and execute every minute detail as if the whole enterprise depended upon it — because it does.”

You can be notified when reservations open through the restaurant’s website.
