LAKEVIEW — Crosby’s Kitchen is celebrating 10 years on the Southport Corridor with a daylong block party as a “thank you” to the restaurant’s supporters.

Crosby’s Kitchen, 3455 N. Southport Ave., opened in 2012 and is part of 4 Star Restaurant Group, which manages several restaurants, including Frasca in Roscoe Village and Smoke Daddy, Tuco and Blondie and Ella Elli in Lakeview.

Crosby’s will open 10 a.m. Tuesday and celebrate its anniversary with a block party featuring face painters, balloon artists and a table-side magician, said James Miller, director of operations for 4 Star Restaurant Group.

“It’s a huge ‘thank you,'” said Dan Harris, director of operations for 4 Star Restaurant Group. “We could easily shake hands inside the building and congratulate ourselves on the last 10 years, but we wouldn’t be able to get to where we ware without the neighborhood, so we’re going all out.”

Kids will eat free during Crosby’s lunch hours, and the restaurant will have $10 wine and cocktail specials all day, Miller said. The restaurant is also bringing back some popular dishes that went off the menu over the years, including grilled artichokes, tuna salad, prime rib special and seafood broil.

The restaurant will play hits from 2012 all day on its speakers, Miller said.

“In the restaurant industry, especially with what we’ve gone through over the last few years, it means a lot to make it to 10 years,” Miller said. “One of the coolest things over the last few years was as takeout boomed, we saw a lot of fan loyalty and dependability within the neighborhood.”

Harris said the celebration is dedicated to the restaurant’s customers.

“This is a thank you to our customers for the last 10 years, and we hope to be around for the next 10, 20 or 30 years — or as long as they’ll have us,” Harris said.

Crosby’s Kitchen will be open 10 a.m.-10 p.m. Tuesday.
