Fast Casual Korean BBQ in Logan Square
The 2500 block of North Milwaukee where the Megamall once rested has seen some major development / gentrification. But change is always imminent and in some cases it isn't as celebrated as others and rightfully so. I don't think the neighborhood needed a Target though for some instances it's easier that it is there. One thing the neighborhood definitely didn't need was a Qdoba or Chipotle type setup. Something so corporate it's traded on the Nasdaq. So I consider the addition of KFire Korean BBQ a win. Not just bc it's not a Jimmy John's but also bc it's a great neighborhood place. People are living in those brand new overpriced apartments they built whether people like it or not. So somebody might as well make a living off their presence and in the case of KFire it's a team of two local Chicagoan's, both of Asian descent, who are bringing fast casual Korean BBQ to the area.
