--Smack in the middle of the Paseo Boricua, a new yellow facade, new windows, building permit, and temporary sign announce the coming of Draft, "eat.drink.lounge." That's at 2525 W. Division.
--At 1465 W. Irving Park, two hand-markered signs announcing the arrival of Myle Restaurant are stuck up over the window paper. Above it a professionally rendered sign for New Life Chinese Restaurant bears a number that leads to a voice mail redirecting callers to a new number for Myle Asian Restaurant (pronounced "my lee")--773-281-2555--which isn't connected yet. Vietnamese perhaps? This is the site of the late great N.N. Smokehouse and its forgettable successor Smoke Country House.
--The Little India Restaurant at 1109 W. Bryn Mawr is open and offering a menu of northern Indian dishes. Nothing surprising there but the carryout menu bears this message: "Adding soon: Asian Italian Fusion Cuisine & Pizza." Ownership has some affiliation with the Devon Avenue Pakistani restaurant Zam Zam. 773-728-6789.
