A new concept from the owner of acclaimed restaurant Soulé is opening Friday in its original West Town location in Chicago.
Soule to Soule, 1931 W. Chicago Ave., will serve up “soul food tapas” in a reimagined space from Soulé owner and cook Bridgette Flagg.
Flagg opened Soulé in 2017 in the neighborhood, after she began selling plates of food on Instagram while working as a hair stylist.
After more than five years in business and numerous celebrity visits, she moved the restaurant in January to an expansive new space in her native North Lawndale.
But Flagg kept her Chicago Avenue lease, and in recent months said she felt increasingly drawn back to the neighborhood where she got her start.
Now, she’s launching Soule to Soule (pronounced soul to soul), which will feature smaller versions of many Soulé favorites.
Soule to Soule is BYOB, and will provide mocktail supplies for customers to make their own drinks. Each table even comes with a mini cocktail shaker.
Soule to Soule will be open 3-10 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday and 3-9 p.m. Sundays.
