Panza to Take the Place of Francesca’s Forno; Harris Gets into Doughnut Game with Glaze
It was back in January when we heard that Francesca’s Forno in Wicker Park was going to close, and that a new Scott Harris project was going to open up in its place. We got some details about the new project a few weeks later, but haven’t heard anything since then. We just confirmed that the new project will be called Panza, and that it will be a “bruschetteria and wine bar.” But that’s not all. Apparently, Harris will also be opening a doughnut shop nearby called Glaze. Considering how the whole doughnut trend is going at the moment, that might be a good plan.
