OK Foodies, be prepared for this one. If you're a foodie, then you're very aware of Tru Restaurant. The new M Burger at 161 E. Huron opens this Thursday and replaces the old chef's table from Tru. There's not a lot of room to sit and dine, but this is sure to be a big grab-and-go lunch spot. By the way, they have a couple chicken items too.
It's time to start learning more about what this great suburb has to offer. The Evanston History Center has a great deal of information about the growth of this near north suburb as well as a direct connection to the Burnham Plan.
