Potawatomi to Open New Restaurant
The resto will be located inside the casino's 19-story hotel, still under construction.

2014 is going to be a big year for Potawatomi Bingo Casino (1721 W. Canal St). The 19-story, 381-room hotel currently in utero is scheduled to open in late summer/early fall. The hotel's first floor will house a restaurant called Locavore, expected to open at the same time as the hotel. Considering the restaurant name, it’s not surprising that locally sourced food is the focus. The menu will feature unusual ingredients like paw paw (a type of fruit), tepary beans, ground cherries and Shagbark syrup (used in place of maple syrup). The 4,400-square-foot joint will have seating for 165 and serve breakfast (see photo above), lunch and dinner. The local element will carry over to the bar, which will serve craft cocktails, regional and small-batch beers, and organic wines. Potawatomi’s executive chef Peter Gebauer is creating the menu. A search is underway for a chef to helm Locavore.
