WRIGLEYVILLE — Lost Never Found is offering a limited version of its menu before the Clark Street bar and restaurant fully opens later this month.
Lost Never Found, opening in the space that used to house Casey Morans at 3660 N. Clark St., will bring “another side to Wrigleyville:” velvet pink booths, craft cocktails and quality food, said owner Kendal Killerman. It’s set to open fully Oct. 27, but people can stop by now for a smaller menu of what it will eventually offer.
“I wanted to target a more feminine crowd. I’m trying to bring the West Loop to Wrigleyville with an Instagrammable aesthetic concept and craft cocktails,” said Killerman, of Lakeview.
Inside the bar are disco balls, neon signs, rose gold flamingos and a greenery wall. The interior is pink throughout.
The menu has eight specialty cocktails to choose from. Its most popular cocktail is the “9 to 75,” a purple spin on the classic French 75 gin cocktail, Killerman said. It’s made with Empress gin, lemon juice, champagne and a scoop of lemon sorbet.
Another fan favorite is “Mezcal-Me-Maybe,” a sweet drink that’s made with mezcal and guava.
The restaurant’s head chef used to work at various fine-dining restaurants, including Tavern on Rush, 1031 N. Rush St.
The menu includes an array of shareable plates, such as fried pickles, truffle spinach and artichoke dip, garlic shrimp and chicken wings, plus soups, salads, sandwiches and pizzas.
“I want the locals to know that this is a place for them, not just a place for tourists coming into the neighborhood for a baseball game,” Killerman said. “We’re putting quality food and craft cocktails into the neighborhood, which I think is something that’s missing right now.”
Lost Never Found is open 4-11 p.m. Tuesday-Thursday, 4 p.m.-midnight Fridays, 11 a.m.-midnight Saturday and 11 a.m.-8 p.m. Sundays. After 10 p.m., pizza is the only food available.
