Just heard the Art Institute of Chicago will host the first show of work by British architect David Adjaye next September. He first came to my attention thanks to a profile last year in The New Yorker. He’s designing the new National Museum of African American History and Culture, on the Mall in Washington, D.C.
Also new next summer – “the 606” – the Chicago version of NYC’s High Line. It includes parks and trails along 2.7 miles of a former elevated train track connecting four neighborhoods (see the606.org)
And as always, some new restaurants to check out:
– Chicken Shop, which serves free-range rotisserie chicken at the new Soho House hotel.
– GT Prime (a meat place from the chef who owns GT Fish & Oyster)
Thanks to the travel Mag AFAR for these suggestons.
