Over the past few years, the Grant Park area + Memorial Drive has become a hot spot for the latest restaurants, places to hang out, and more! Larkin on Memorial is no exception – the Paces Properties development has been a one-stop center for neighboring communities. Since opening in 2017, Larkin has experienced a few changes. The most exciting one yet is a new restaurant making its debut in late 2023 – Birdcage. The Latin-inspired restaurant, backed by Chef Leslie Cohen, is set to open in late 2023, and will be located across the street from another restaurant by Cohen – Firepit Pizza Tavern.
