According to a recent article from Daily Herald, Lazy Dog Restaurant and Bar will soon expand to Buffalo Grove at 51 McHenry Rd.
“Our plan is to be able to open in the summer of 2024,” a representative of Lazy Dog told What Now Chicago, ” There will be a warm interior aesthetic complete with lodge-inspired furnishings such as fireplaces, ledge stone, a chandelier crafted from Aspen logs and artwork reminiscent of the Cowboy State, alongside a large outdoor patio which will be built around a cozy firepit for gatherings with friends and family.”
Daily Herald’s article states that “the developer envisions a 7,400-square-foot one-story restaurant with a 1,300-square-foot outdoor patio on the site.”
Lazy Dog draws inspiration from the soul-soothing lifestyle of the Rocky Mountains, a landscape close to the heart of its founder, Chris Simms. Reflecting the essence of the mountains where Simms spent cherished family vacations, Lazy Dog embraces versatility, catering to casual weeknight dinners, leisurely gatherings with friends, or indulgent evenings out.
Lazy Dog began in 2003, with the inaugural restaurant opening its doors in the enchanting vicinity of Huntington Beach. What awaited patrons was a fusion of familiar family classics imbued with new flavors, all presented with the embrace of small-town hospitality. The culinary journey unfolds seamlessly from lunch to dinner, and even weekends are honored with their offerings for brunch. The bar program is also a prominent feature, boasting a range of distinctive and accessible specialty cocktails, an extensive array of craft beers, and Lazy Dog’s signature handcrafted brews.
Every meal is crafted by hand, including an array of house-made sauces, marinades, and dressings. The seasonal menu emerges as a tribute to nature’s cyclical beauty, described as celebrating each season’s bounty in a culinary symphony, according to the company website.
