No Nookies for you!

Word on the street is that the idea of Nookies coming to Edgewater is dead. Nookies, a popular breakfast spot with locations in Lakeview, Lincoln Park and Old Town, was long planning to open a fourth location in Edgewater at the corner of Bryn Mawr and Winthrop. The city released this press release in 2003 describing the usage of TIF money to help redevelop the building for Nookies’ use. The Alderman’s office even updated our community via her e-newsletter in 2008 saying that construction progress was being made and a Fall 2008 opening was likely.
Update: The Edgewater Chamber of Commerce still believes Nookies is a “go” – although they didn’t have any up to date info and acknowledged the project has been start/stop for the past few years.
