The Morse/Glenwood Arts District just got another great shot in the arm with the long-awaited opening of MorseL, Rogers Park’s newest eatery. And I’m inviting you to Follow Me on Friday to check them out!
Join me at MorseL, 1406 W. Morse, this Friday, November 2nd, 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Owners Colm Treacy and MaryAnn Culleton will offer a free drink (alcoholic or soda) and a sampling of their tasty morsels to anyone who shows up.
MorseL is located on the northwest corner of Morse and Glenwood, just across the street from the Morse “L” station (just in case you didn’t get the connection). A dollar store formerly occupied the space, and for you neighborhood old-timers, the site once was home to Kamar’s Diner.
My wife Barbara and I stopped by MorseL last night on Halloween and it was quite a treat. It was their opening night, but you would never know it. The service and food were flawless. The staff was incredibly friendly and the food simply delicious. I definitely recommend the Escargot appetizer and the pumpkin cheese cake.
MorseL is so new they don’t yet have a web site or even outdoor signage, but they have a Friends Page on Facebook. Please “friend” them and then join me Friday night as we welcome this great new restaurant to our neighborhood and celebrate the continued revitalization of Morse Avenue!
“Follow Me on Friday” is one of my efforts to encourage my constituents to sample some of the 49th Ward’s finest restaurants, pubs and businesses. Each week on my Facebook page, I post the name and location of a local restaurant, pub or business where I’ll be hanging out after work on Friday. The establishment offers specials for all my Facebook followers and their friends. It’s a great opportunity for you to check out one of the fine local 49th Ward businesses you may not have visited before.
