In spite of the sour national economy, new businesses keep opening in the 49th Ward.
I’m pleased to announce I’m hosting another Follow Me on Friday at ANOTHER GRAND OPENING! This time we’re celebrating the opening of Jenny’s Gourmet Restaurant, 1642 W. Howard (just east of the Howard “L”). Join me this Friday, September 30th, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at Jenny Lee’s new restaurant as we sample some of her delicious Thai, Vietnamese and Chinese specialties. I’ll provide the wine, beer and soft drinks.
Jenny prepares her freshly cooked meals on site with no oil. She offers both meat and vegetarian options. Entrées range from pad Thai Noodles, Vietnamese vermicelli noodles, fried rice, Thai sweet and sour and more. Appetizers include Vietnamese spring rolls and house salad. For drinks, sample her special smoothies (24 oz.), Thai tea, Thai coffee, strawberry, strawberry-mango, mango, and lychee.
Don’t forget to check out Jenny’s luxury desserts, all homemade and fresh on order, ranging from tiramisu, fruit cake, carrot cake, cheesecake, and her popular cheesecake fruit cupcakes! She also offers a range of cakes from strawberry, chocolate and yellow to lemon, carrot and mango.
Check out the newest restaurant in Rogers Park either tomorrow or very soon thereafter.
“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.
