A liquor license application has been filed with the City of Chicago for Bambola & Coquette, expected to open at 1400 W Randolph Street in the heart of West Loop. The owners/officers of the eatery are listed as Bonhomme 1400 LLC and Daniel Alonso, Founder and Creative Director of the Bonhomme Hospitality Group.
We reached out to Alonso but did not hear back at the time of publication, so the new restaurant’s concept and opening timeline remain unclear.
Bonhomme Hospitality is the restaurant group behind other Chicago eateries like Beatnik West Town and Beatnik On the River, Botanico, and, most recently, Good Funk. Good Funk, a trendy natural wine bar and café, opened at the end of last year, on December 16th.
Founded in 2012, Bonhomme Hospitality is a lively hospitality development and management company named for the street Alonso grew up on. “Storytelling is at the heart of all of Bonhomme’s properties, which is reflected in the harmonious relationship of the food and beverage programs with the interior design. A passion for global flavors, visual opulence and repurposed antiques are all hallmarks of Bonhomme,” shares the group’s website.
Although we don’t yet know what Bambola & Coquette will bring to the Bonhomme portfolio, it will likely follow in the footsteps of its predecessors by striving to provide “warm, thoughtful, and memorable experiences” for Chicagoans.
