Ty Fujimura of Fujimura Hospitality and Entente Executive Chef Brian Fisher are pleased to announce significant changes at their Michelin-starred, approachable fine dining destination in Chicago. Early spring 2019, Entente will relocate to 700 N. Sedgwick, a move that will usher in a heightened spirit of culinary innovation and opportunity for new, unique programming. The existing Lakeview location will transition into a versatile event space.
This is a growth story for Fujimura and Chef Fisher as they move into this next phase of their partnership, which initially formed to introduce Entente in 2016. The team at Entente will take full advantage of a larger kitchen and front-of-house space which is more conducive to the restaurant’s functionality, allows for expanded creative expression and enhanced guest experience.
“This move expands on the true idea behind our concept,” says Chef Fisher. “The space itself is really beautiful and as a chef, the ability to build out a dream kitchen means that we’ll have the chance to push the boundaries of our cooking even further.”
With great love and appreciation for the Lakeview neighborhood, Fujimura insists that’s it’s not goodbye. Rather, it’s offering the neighborhood a whole new type of space when Entente moves, with the opportunity to discover chefs, cuisines and experiences from around the city and beyond. Fujimura believes the concept, with more details to be released about soon, will lend even more reason to explore Lakeview.
“Brian and I are thrilled that Entente will have the opportunity to soar in a new space,” says Fujimura. “River North holds a world of opportunities for pushing the Entente concept forward. We are eternally grateful to the Lakeview community for embracing us and allowing us to build our foundation there, and we can’t wait to open our doors to something new and distinctly curated in that space.”
