Parsons Chicken and Fish is for real coming to Halsted Street in Lincoln Park replacing a long time local business.  I noticed last week the Lemay Auto Parts property renovation has begun. A trustee deed for the property was recorded in early 2017 but no price found 😒. Construction permits were issued in June of this year.  I've forever wondered when this site would finally get re-developed and I'm glad it will be a fun restaurant. 

This strip of North Halsted has had it's dive bar heyday and now is home to higher end condos mixed with a good spattering of eateries.  The Parson's vibe will kill it here steps from DePaul's campus and the former Children's Memorial mega-development.  As mentioned many times in the past I spent many years on Halsted/Fullerton/ Diversey with my real estate offices on Diversey then Halsted.  My wife worked at the old Children's campus for almost 14 years before the move to Streeterville.  I look forward to hanging on the new patio (if I'm not too old)!
