to help invigorate our new minigrow Wabash Ave space in the heart of Chicago, we collaborated local artist Emmy Star Brown + tasked her with creating a mural which complemented the colorful ingredients + natural elements found on the minigrow menu. The end result—an intricate, hand-drawn pattern, layered over warm, inviting tones—graces our dining room wall, bringing a tangible energy into the space, one which matches the urban flow outside in The Loop.

we're constantly searching for ways to better connect to the communities we call home — ways to bring a bit of the cities we inhabit into each restaurant. Chicago's numerous neighborhoods are lined with incredible street art + murals, which help tell the city's collective story, and some of the area's more complex, vibrant installations are the work of local artist Rubén Aguirre.
