Why did you decide to open in River Forest?

We are real estate investors/developers in River Forest and own several properties in the surrounding areas. We were approached by one of our tenants, Elizabeth Madden, who is a chef and was looking for commercial kitchen space in a convenient space. We bought 349 Ashland and renovated it to fit the needs of chefs and artisans alike.

What would locals be surprised to hear about you, your business?

We have over 15 culinary tenants, ranging from catering services that serve nearly 10,000 meals a week to local favorites like Rare Bird Preserves and Karl's Craft Soups.
