The eagle-eyed neighborhood scouts at Uptown Update spy with their little eye a delightfully punctuated sign in the window at 4645 North Broadway:

~!!ATTENTION ATTENTION!!~
!!!SOUL FOOD!!!
RESTAURANT COMING UP SOON!!!

Putting two and two together, they wonder if this isn't Kuma's South, the southern-inflected outpost of Kuma's Corner that Mike Cain floated to Time Out Chicago back in January: "We’re gonna do barbecue, fried chicken, greens, that kind of thing," he told TOC, noting as well that Uptown was in consideration as a neighborhood for the new joint. If this news sticks, this could be bigger than a Pantera burger. [Uptown Update]
