New Neighborhood Restaurant, Bar & Arcade Will Offer Contemporary American Cuisine, Craft Beer and Premium Bourbon

Chicago, Ill. (September 15, 2015) – LKH Management (LKH), the group behind Lake View’s Hydrate, Halsted’s Bar & Grill, Replay, Elixir and VII, announced that Replay Andersonville will officially open its doors to the public on Tuesday, September 15 at 11 am.

Located at 5358 N. Clark (at Balmoral), Replay Andersonville will serve as a restaurant, bar and arcade, offering Contemporary American cuisine, 26 craft tap beers and an extensive premium bourbon selection. The 2,300-square foot venue features reclaimed wood, exposed brick and 144 seats, including the bar, restaurant and outdoor patio. A mural in the arcade, which was created by local artist David Andora, reflects the venue’s playful vibe, which invites guests to linger, and enjoy three popular pinball games or 25 complimentary vintage video games, such as Ms. Pac Man, Dig Dug and Galaga.

Unlike its sister location in Lake View, Replay Andersonville will serve food, showcasing innovative and distinctive daily lunch and dinner, and weekend brunch items.

Diners can expect fresh, high-quality ingredients and delicious flavors. An extensive list of weekend breakfast and brunch options run the gamut from sweet to savory, while lunch and dinner offer something for everyone, including signature salads, sandwiches and innovative, build-your-own burgers. The restaurant will also feature chef-driven specials, late-night dining options and a children’s menu.

Chefs Bernardo Ibarra and Steve Farbstein, formerly of Chicago’s Girl and the Goat and Bristol & Gather, respectively, will helm the kitchen. The menu includes classic American comfort dishes with a modern twist, elevating ordinary dishes by using unexpected flavor combinations and textures, including: hickory-smoked meatloaf, cornmeal fried chicken, and seasonal steak and pasta dishes. Some personal Chef favorites include: a Berkshire Pork Chop; Grass-fed Natural Flat Iron Steak; and Bacon Waffles with Black Pepper Butter, Sea Salt & Black Cherry Bourbon Syrup. All dishes will be made in-house, using sustainably raised and locally sourced ingredients when possible. Fresh pressed juice will serve as a nutritious start to the day or make a great addition to a brunch cocktail.

“We’re not only excited about the food we prepare, but also passionate about the people we prepare it for,” said Chef Steve. “We want guests to enjoy themselves, explore the menu and try something new, combining the familiar with the unexpected. Replay’s combination of innovative food, craft beer, premium bourbon and old school arcade games creates an environment that takes you back to your formative years. We invite the community to join us to have a great time with friends and make new memories.”

 Replay Andersonville will be open from Monday through Friday from 11 am – 2 am, Saturday from 9 am – 3 am and Sunday from 9 am – 2 am. Food will be served Monday through Friday from 11 am – 10 pm, and Saturday and Sunday from 9 am – 11 pm, with late night menu offerings available every night.

Replay Andersonville will sit adjacent to the new Elixir Lounge Andersonville, located at 1509 W. Balmoral, also opening Tuesday, September 15. The two venues will share a kitchen and outdoor dining area.
