ANDERSONVILLE — Another popular Logan Square-based restaurant is coming to Andersonville.
Lonesome Rose is planning to open at 5310 N. Clark St., the restaurant announced Thursday. It will be the second location for the Mexican-inspired eatery from prominent restaurant group Land and Sea Dept.
The second Lonesome Rose is expected to open next year, the company said.
Lonesome Rose is coming to the former home of The Bird Cage, a club-restaurant from the restaurateur behind the nearby Lady Gregory’s and Wilde in Lakeview.
The Bird Cage opened in summer 2020, taking over the location from upscale Mexican spot Octavio. It closed a little more than a year later, with its owner saying the business was a victim of the pandemic. The new Lonesome Rose will be 6,000 square feet with a large dining space and back patio.
“It’s an expansive, light-filled space with tons of indoor seating, big windows that open up to sidewalk seating, and even a hidden back patio,” Lonesome Rose’s management said on its announcement post to social media.
The original Lonesome Rose opened in 2017 at 2101 N. California Ave. The acclaimed restaurant is known for its takes on Mexican fare, its cocktails and its homemade version of the Choco Taco.
It will be the third Logan Square eatery to set its sights on Andersonville.
Parson’s Chicken & Fish opened last year at 5721 N. Clark St., making it the fourth local outpost for the restaurant that debuted in Logan Square. Parson’s is owned by Land and Sea Dept., the group behind Lonesome Rose, Longman and Eagle, Milk Room and other businesses.
Logan Square’s retro-style joint Pizza Lobo is working to open a location at the former 7-Eleven at 5457 N. Clark St.
“We’re so excited to join our sister restaurant [Parson’s] in such a special neighborhood and grow with the community,” Lonesome Rose’s management wrote on social media.
