Last time we heard from the owners of Webster’s Wine Bar, they had been forced to change the name of Smith, their upcoming Logan Square wine bar, after a similarly named restaurant in New York threatened to sue. The owners didn’t immediately have a replacement, and for the past few weeks we have been struggling with whether to call it the “Restaurant Formerly Known as Smith,” or the more cumbersome, “Unnamed Logan Square Wine Bar.” Luckily, we have just confirmed that the project is now called Telegraph, and it’s planning to open soon.

The space, which is located at the corner of Logan Blvd and Milwaukee Ave, looks like it is almost completely decorated, and also just passed all of its city inspections. We were told that it plans to open to the public on Friday, July 8, with some friends and family events scheduled for later next week.
