Welcome to Northcenter Chamber of Commerce President James Gates Hello! This is James, president of your Northcenter Chamber of Commerce. After a year inside, it feels great to return to the Northcenter neighborhood and see exciting signs of public life. Amidst the challenges, we saw new shops and restaurants open, neighbors gathering to exercise and play at our revamped Northcenter Town Square, and the community coming together to support one another. I want to thank each and every one of you who have supported our small business community, donated and volunteered for our local schools and nonprofits, and helped make the Town Square a dynamic community space. Since 1946, the Northcenter Chamber of Commerce has been committed to strengthening the business community and fostering the health and well-being of our neighborhood. From a small group of local merchants then, to a nearly 450 member organization today, our growth as one of our city’s largest and most active civic associations is a testament to the vibrance and endurance of the entrepreneurial spirit of our beloved neighborhood. That spirit is eternal, and in the coming days, weeks, and months, I know it will be on full display in Northcenter storefronts and streets, but most importantly, in our hearts. We encourage you, our neighbors, to keep that spirit alive by supporting our independent local businesses when planning your date nights or family outings, shopping for gifts or choosing after-school activities for your kids.

47th Ward Alderman Matt Martin Dear Neighbors, Northcenter is known for its excellent schools, vibrant commercial corridors, and beautiful parks and playlots. Many members of our ward take pride in living in such a welcoming and close-knit neighborhood, and thousands of residents from throughout our city frequently travel to Northcenter to take advantage of its many culinary and cultural offerings. Our local businesses play a central role in making our neighborhoods the dynamic and unique places they are, and this is as true in Northcenter as anywhere else. From taverns and coffee shops to specialty retail and professional services, small businesses in Northcenter help make the neighborhood special. That’s why I will be proud, as your alderman, to support them by ensuring that, despite the challenges we face, the neighborhood and its local economy will continue to thrive for years to come. I look forward to doing this work alongside you. As we work to achieve a new sense of normalcy amidst the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, please don’t hesitate to reach out to my office—whether to simply say hello, or to share your thoughts and vision on how we can build an even stronger community. Yours in service, Alderman Matt Martin

I strongly encourage you to reach out to the Northcenter Chamber in good times and bad. We’re here for you. Please know that my team and I will always do our utmost to lend a hand and support you in any—and every—way possible. Welcome to Northcenter. We’re so glad you’re here. Sincerely, James Gates President, Northcenter Chamber of Commerce Photo Credit: Steven E. Gross

Northcenter is... Community-minded

From families who have been in the neighborhood for decades to a new influx of young professionals, Northcenter combines big-city life with a neighborly attitude. Community events such as the Northcenter Farmers Market and Summer Concert Series bring people from all walks of life together. Four Chicago Park District parks serve the neighborhood, and the recently renovated Northcenter Town Square has given the neighborhood another dynamic gathering place. You will also find plenty of organizations and service providers improving quality of life for veterans, youth, senior citizens and disabled neighbors, as well as religious communities for many faiths.

Connected

A variety of transit options conveniently connect Northcenter to the whole city. Three CTA Brown Line stations, a nearby Ravenswood Metra station and key bus routes along Irving Park, Damen, Ashland and Western make Northcenter a hub for North Side travel. For more active commuters, Northcenter is one of the city’s most bike-friendly neighborhoods, with designated bike lanes on Damen Avenue, shared lanes on Lincoln and 17 bike-sharing stations located throughout the Northcenter neighborhood.

Craveable

Whether you enjoy Michelin guide-acclaimed gastronomic delights, hidden neighborhood comfort-food dives or authentic regional cuisines from around the globe, Northcenter has mouthwatering dining options for all tastes. If you are looking for a drink afterwards, you can find everything from exquisite craft cocktails to $1 cans at one of more than 30 neighborhood bars and taverns. In 2016, The Hop Review readers named Northcenter the best Chicago neighborhood for beer. With acclaimed breweries like Begyle Brewing, Dovetail Brewery, Burning Bush and the incoming Hop Butcher, Northcenter is the beating heart of Chicago’s craft brew movement.

Creative

You don’t have to go downtown or to Second City to enjoy a great night out at the theatre. Northcenter has some of the city’s best performing arts gems. Enjoy Chicago’s most beloved art form—improv comedy—at Cornservatory or Bughouse Theater. Music lovers will fall for Martyrs’, one of Chicago’s top spots for great local and national musical acts. Check out acclaimed live theatre right here at Windy City Playhouse and Ghostlight Ensemble, or visit any number of local pubs for captivating storytelling and “live lit” nights. In the summer, many of these storytelling and performance groups gather for open-air performances in the new Northcenter Town Square. And when it comes to locally-inspired shopping, Northcenter is one of Chicago’s “most creator-influenced neighborhoods,” according to Do312. Be sure to check out the “Makers and Merchants” row on Lincoln Avenue, south of Irving Park, for beautiful furniture, handmade accessories and more.

Eclectic

Independent businesses and mom ‘n’ pop shops are the backbone of any community, and Northcenter has some of Chicago’s best hidden gems. From games and comic books to handmade jewelry and accessories; from craft brews to crafting supplies, your new favorite store is around the corner, so go ahead and treat yourself.

Scholarly

Bell Elementary and Coonley Elementary are two of the finest schools in the Chicago Public School system. Ravenswood School, a fine arts-focused neighborhood magnet, has a fabulous school community. A robust private school selection rounds out your great education options, and the influx of new families has brought a number of new high-quality early childhood care centers to Northcenter.

The Neighborhood Boys & Girls Club is proud to be celebrating its 90th anniversary serving the Northcenter community and beyond. NBGC has served four generations of boys and girls, with athletic, after school, remote learning assistance, summer programs and leadership programs. Located at Revere Park, NBGC’s rich history parallels that of Northcenter. Robert Buehler, whose family owned the local Victor Comptometer business (now Basic Wire & Cable), founded the club. In early 1932, a cottage on the corner of Irving & Campbell, first used as offices for a brick factory and then as the fieldhouse for the River Park District, soon became the clubhouse. As the neighborhood grew, so did NBGC.

Neighborhood Boys & Girls Club 2501 W. Irving Park Rd.

Since then, thousands of young people have enjoyed the programs at NBGC, making

lifelong friends. Kids learn the lessons of sportsmanship and teamwork in a year-round program where “everyone plays.” They grow up and become leaders, go to school with scholarships earned at the club, becoming effective participants in industry, education and public service. Most importantly, NBGC’s members demonstrate the club’s motto, “For Better Men and Women,” as they make their place in our community. The Neighborhood Boys & Girls Club is a 501(c)3 nonprofit, independent organization, not affiliated with other Boys & Girls Clubs. As it has been throughout its 90-year history, NBGC continues to be a benefactor of the generosity of Northcenter’s businesses, the public sector and most importantly families of our community, evidenced by their support of significant enhancements made to the club’s facilities these past 10 years.

Basant takes its name from a traditional festival in India that celebrates the first day of Spring. This new restaurant carries on that theme of new beginnings by bringing together tradition and innovation through food.

Owner Jeet Singh’s vision for Basant is to take patrons on a journey through old and new Indian cuisine. The “Classics” menu items are inspired by recipes passed down through generations, while the “Signature” dishes are brimming with vibrant and innovative flavors. This summer, the Basant team is excited to launch new initiatives including Sunday Brunch, a cocktail program, and an updated sidewalk patio. Stop by for their new Happy Hour, Tuesday through Friday from 4-6 p.m., for specials on select appetizers and drinks. Hall-of-Fame Executive Chef Manmohan Singh, Jeet’s father, is the creative force behind Basant’s inviting menu. Chef Singh recently received a Lifetime Achievement Award from a panel of top hotel industry professionals in India. The father-and-son duo are grateful to be able to realize their dream of working together.

Kids’ Work Chicago Too 3429 N. California Ave. For educator Lynda MacHaila, founding  Kids’ Work was a family affair—the name comes from a quip made by one of her first students, Andy, and her daughter, Sarah, serves as the centers’ current Owner and Executive Director. It’s those roots that lead the Kids’ Work team to describe their centers as “family born, family run, and family centric,” keeping the needs of kids and working parents top of mind. For families looking for an early childhood education community they can grow into, Kids’ Work Chicago Too is here for you. This top-rated daycare and preschool offers programs for children from infancy through kindergarten, creating a one-stop shop to serve families through school age.  Kids’ Work seamlessly combines an academically sound curriculum with hands-on, play-based learning. Kids’ Work kids leave with everything they need to thrive in elementary school, with an emphasis on open-ended play, outdoor exploration, and content-rich social-emotional learning. This summer, Kids’ Work will move into their brand-new location at 3429 N. California Ave., featuring newly renovated facilities, individual classrooms for each age group and a stellar open-air playground, which offers partial coverage and comfortable seclusion in the space’s courtyard. The center’s proximity to the river allows for opportunities for tranquil, safe and supervised nature exploration to connect kids to their environment.

Backed by 25 years of clinical research experience, Satek and his team of board-certified doctors, nurses, and clinical researchers have come to specialize in the study of investigational medications, food products, and supplements for the treatment of chronic diseases, notably in metabolic disorders, Alzheimer’s Disease, depression, and COVID-19. Since opening, their trials have helped get new medications, treatments, and therapies FDA approved, which enables future generations to live happier, healthier, and longer lives. Great Lakes has been featured locally on WGN, CBS, PBS, and in the Chicago Tribune for the successful results of their studies and for their efforts against fighting Alzheimer’s Disease. Great Lakes is a proud LGBTQ-owned business and in 2018, Satek was recognized by Crain’s Chicago Business as one of Chicago’s most notable LGBTQ Executives.

Great Lakes Clinical Trials 5149 N. Ashland Ave. Great Lakes Clinical Trials is an independent clinical research center located in Andersonville, at the corner of Foster and Ashland (yes, the iconic blue awnings!). Founded in 2014 by Steve Satek, the opening of Great Lakes Clinical Trials allowed Chicago’s north side population to have somewhere closer to travel to, as one of only a few clinics in the Chicagoland area.

You can stay up to date on their current enrolling studies by visiting their website www.greatlakesclinicaltrials. com or following them on social at @GreatLakesCT. All trials are voluntary, compensated, and do not require insurance to participate. Transportation to the clinic is often provided.

Northcenter is ... Community-minded. Scholarly. Creative.

New Businesses Thriving in Northcenter Amid a year of uncertainty, Northcenter’s business community continues to survive, thrive and even welcome some exciting new members. Here’s a look at just a few of the new businesses that have opened or expanded in the Northcenter neighborhood in the past year, the challenges they faced and their goals for the future.

Singh says despite the obstacles, the Northcenter community has been incredibly supportive of Basant. “We didn’t really advertise before we opened,” he says. “But someone posted an order at 4 p.m. the day we opened, and that was really heartening. From a community perspective, I couldn’t ask for much more.”

Basant (1939 W. Byron St.)

Btrainer Fitness (2248 W. Irving Park Rd.) After months inside, many Chicagoans were looking for an opportunity to safely return to the gym. Braulio Figueroa and Jennifer Gill, co-owners of Btrainer Fitness, saw an opportunity to greet them and open their second fitness studio location in Northcenter. “We thought it was a really good time to try and bring a safe environment in the community to work out,” Gill says.

Photo Credit: Steven E. Gross For restaurateurs like Jeet Singh, who opened his modern Indian restaurant, Basant, in Northcenter in February, part of the challenge came with introducing themselves to the community without being able to physically invite diners in. “People become more invested when they have physically been to the location and made that emotional connection,” Singh says. This meant having to reevaluate Basant’s initial menu to allow the food to shine in a carryout setting, and to remove items they thought wouldn’t get to shine in the manner Singh and his culinary team intended. They retooled the menu to focus on items that travel well and make online ordering as convenient as possible.

The launch of the new location has not been without challenges, particularly around building trust with new customers who may not yet be ready to work out in new environments with new people. But Gill says she and Figueroa have prioritized client and staff safety by limiting capacity, focusing on one-on-one personal training and requiring face coverings. Gill encourages new prospective clients looking to work on their wellness goals to give Btrainer a try and choosing smaller, local fitness facilities over the big chain gyms, highlighting Btrainer’s one-on-one personal attention for every client. New clients can try out two complimentary classes. For Figueroa, the growth of Btrainer is personal-it’s been the manifestation of a lifelong goal, one that he moved to Chicago from Chile six years ago to achieve. “He’s come to this country to do what he’s passionate about, to help other people,” Gill says.

L&M Parkside (2291 W. Montrose Ave.)

However, the lead time before reopening for full indoor dining did come with some advantages. Singh says in addition to focusing on the safety of their staff and the community, a slower ramp-up allowed more time to train the team and familiarize them with Indian cuisine.

In less than two years in their unmistakable corner at Lincoln & Montrose, L&M Fine Foods, Northcenter’s premier independent grocer, has amassed a strong local following with their warm service and quality selection of sandwiches, cheeses and other tasty products.

Singh encourages the community to continue prioritizing public health and safety to help ensure restaurants like his can thrive. As safer dine-in opportunities increase, he is excited to showcase more of the innovative, fresh dishes his father, Hall of Fame chef Manmohan Singh, creates. “I think as people dine-in more, the innovative part will come out a bit more,” he says. “[Our menu] is all about variety and a delicate balance of spices and textures, and with dine-in, we can bring more innovation in front of them.”

Now, the grocer plans to open an additional spot, a restaurant and bar across from Welles Park called L&M Parkside, opening in July 2021. “We were already building a brand and identity that was becoming part of the community,” says L&M owner Rebecca Goldfarb. “I love the idea of anchoring this point between Northcenter and Lincoln Square.”

New Businesses Thriving in Northcenter (cont’d from page 24) L & M Parkside continued from page 24 we make a fun menu that brings people back? How can we take our experience home?” They decided to bring their tasting menu concept to a carryout format, switching up the menu every two weeks, from the bread course to dessert. Robert et Fils cooks their carryout meals to order, with the intent for diners to pick them up and enjoy immediately at home or in a park. The menus were a hit. “We heard from our customers that we were a go-to date night choice for Friday and Saturday nights, that the food was something to look forward to, and that’s wonderful praise,” Ezzat says. Goldfarb says she’s excited about the growth of independent restaurants and retail in this section of Northcenter, including Canna Bella Lux, Lizzy J Cafe, Cobblestone Restaurant, Menya Goku and more, and neighbors have responded positively to the to the influx of new businesses. “It’s really great to feel like we’re contributing. As more businesses can confidently open in that area, the better we’ll all do as independent businesses,” she says.

This summer, Robert et Fils is excited to launch their patio, with drink and snack service in the spirit of the French tradition of goûter, when children would get off school and the families would enjoy a snack and start to unwind together. In addition to carryout and in-person dining, fans can also support Robert et Fils through their bread pickup and their new curated Wine Club program, with bottles curated by Ezzat.

Goldfarb says she hopes L&M Parkside will be an accessible neighborhood restaurant, but also a destination, a spot to encourage more visitors to Northcenter and the surrounding communities. Even before Parkside opens, though, Goldfarb stressed the importance of consistent support for local, independent businesses like L&M. “The more you shop with a small, independent business, the more it allows that business to elevate and try more things for their customers and take more creative risks,” Goldfarb says.

Robert et Fils (4229 N. Lincoln) When COVID-19 hit in 2020, Robert et Fils, a relaxed finedining French restaurant on Lincoln Avenue, was still under construction. The team was faced with a big challenge upon opening—how to showcase their point of view and entice neighbors quickly and safely. “We had to get really creative,” says General Manager Rami Ezzat. “We thought, how can

Collaboration Powers Northcenter Through 2020 The past year tested our neighborhood in ways we could not have imagined. But our community came together and not only survived, but thrived. A key to community resilience has been through collaboration—local businesses partnering with the community, and with each other, to provide enriching programming, help neighbors in need and more. Here are just a few of our favorite examples.

Collaborations between businesses and the community: •  The Center for Autism and Related Disorders (CARD) held a workshop for the teaching staff at Goldfish Swim School. Goldfish supervisors will now be able to provide assistance to teachers and students and will be able to teach swim lessons and safety to CARD’s clients.

Collaborations between local businesses

•  Torino Ramen supported Coonley Elementary School with a virtual fundraiser!

•  Botanical Café and embellish chicago collaborated on a fabulous event for Small Business Saturday, offering a free Botanical Café coffee and candle to the first 50 customers at embellish that day.

•  Half Acre Beer Company turned their Balmoral location to a drop-off site for a professional clothing drive for the Cara Program. •  Bottles and Cans, ROCKS Northcenter and The Piggery were among a host of restaurants and local businesses to support DePaul College Prep through give-back nights, prizes for fundraisers and much more!

•  The Davis Theater and Canna Bella Lux partnered on a screening of the iconic movie Mean Girls to drive traffic to both businesses and build community. •  For some cozy holiday fun, Vivant Gardening Services and Indigo & Violet Studios held a tag-team holiday wreathmaking workshop over Zoom! •  For the past two summers, Martyrs’ and Mrs. Murphy and Sons Irish Bistro have shared a Lincoln Avenue patio area to provide safe outdoor dining and dynamic live music performances.

•  Kaminska Dermatology partnered with the Greater Chicago Food Depository and clients donated more than 5,000 meals! Here at the Chamber, we are passionate about helping foster collaborations like these.

Local Pantries Feeding Our Communities One of the many challenges facing our community as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic was an increase in food insecurity. Our amazing local nonprofits rose to meet this challenge and feed our neighbors. Our local pantries noticed two key struggles emerging at the same time—the increase in food insecurity and economic impact of the pandemic on the restaurant industry—and devised creative solutions to address both. In the spring of 2020, Lakeview Pantry launched Feed it Forward, which purchased chef-prepared boxed meals from local restaurant partners to support local restaurants while feeding the community. During the program’s peak in spring of 2020, up to 10,000 meals were prepared and distributed. Around the same time, Common Pantry in Northcenter launched the I Am Your Neighbor meal program, which is still active, providing healthy, ready-to-eat meals from local restaurants to hungry neighbors. With support from donors, local Chambers, restaurants and the community at large, restaurants would receive a monetary “tab” to cover the cost of providing these meals. Collaboration for our local pantries expanded beyond restaurants. In addition to their partnerships with social service agencies like Thresholds, Lakeview Pantry worked alongside the Chicago Cubs to set up a massive emergency pantry outside Wrigley Field. Common Pantry’s collaborations

included purchasing produce from Global Gardens Refugee Training Farm, a dual fundraising effort with the Northcenter Chamber through our Hop, Stop ‘N’ Run 5K and the regular First Wednesday Food Drive from the Northcenter Neighborhood Association. Common Pantry Director Margaret O’Conor highlights the efforts of one neighbor, David Reinisch, who has baked fresh bread for the neighbors Common Pantry serves every week. “Our community is Common Pantry,” she says. And our local pantries are continuing to expand services to meet the needs of the community. Lakeview Pantry is continuing their online market, an option that allows for consumer choice and convenient curbside pickup, along with their home delivery program. In May of 2021, Common Pantry purchased a new space at 3900 N. Lincoln that will allow them to serve the community more efficiently and with greater capacity. The economic impact and subsequent recovery for our most vulnerable neighbors from the past year is still unfolding, and our local pantries are prepared to meet those challenges. You can support Common Pantry or Lakeview Pantry by signing up to volunteer online, making a donation, teaming up with your coworkers, school or block or even just staying in touch by following on social media!
