Vapiano is the perfect Thursday home for us in the wake of Noble Tree's untimely demise. It's an upscale Italian place that's somewhere between fast casual and casual dining. The emphasis is on freshness—and they use a card system that makes separate checks really easy.
In addition to delicious food, Vapiano has a full bar and plenty of space. Check out the menu (http://www.vapianointernational.com/vapiano/).
Vapiano is on Clark between Wrightwood and Deming, a few blocks south of Diversey. (It is wheelchair-accessible).
As always, we will be collecting the $1 meetup fee.
Hope to see you there!
