Another catering operation is getting a permanent location as City Provisions Deli plans to open in Ravenswood on August 6. Talking to Chicago Magazine, owner Cleetus Friedman doesn’t like the word deli but couldn’t think of anything else to call it, “This is about connecting people with their food.” The shop will butcher its own meat, and offer locally produced bread and ice cream.
