A new “Texas-style cuisine gastropub” is coming to the South Loop. It’s called Ole Hardwood, and the menu will feature “many styles of meat smoking, plank cooking, various rib flavors, and braised dishes.” Hey, at least it’s not another barbecue restaurant. Anyway, a posting on Craigslist shows jobs postings for nearly every position, including servers and bartenders. The only question is where in the South Loop it will be located. Sloopin believes that it might be taking over the space at 1315 S. Wabash, which has been home to both Exposure Tapas and Utopia. It looks like the space is being renovated again, and that some fireplaces are being built in. Check out the full Craigslist post below.
