Default Frank Thomas reopening sports bar in Berwyn.

Heard the food was pretty bad previously. Hopefully it will be much better with Buona Beef managing.

Watched last year's All-Star Game there with a buddy of mine. Place was a ghost town. Hopefully this second chance is more successful.

I hope he finds success, but man the restaurant business is so tough to be successful in.

I pass the building on my way to work some days. Of course, MJ's new restaurant is in the same building as my Oak Brook office. I haven't had lunch there, yet...

Was there on 9/22 with another WSI member. I guess they had just re-launched, but I had no clue it changed from the old BHB. Too many Cubs logos for my taste, but cool place otherwise.

Buona's headquarters, I think, are just down the road at the SW corner of Oak Park Ave and Roosevelt. There's also a Buona restaurant at that SE corner. Makes sense for a lot of reasons. 35 is at the SW corner of OP and Cermak. Might have to check it out at some point. Walked into BHBP before it closed, and it was a mess.

This is funny. The place isn't that far from my house, but I never made it out there partly because of the terrible reviews I read here. I never even knew it went out of business. I'll have to get to the new version some time.
