Going for the big time.
Going for the big time.

Metromix has the scoop that Michelle and Vinny Garcia from Bleeding Heart Bakery are teaming up with Scott Weiner and Greg Mohr of Wicker Park’s Fifty/50, to create two massive new projects in the same Ukrainian Village building. Bleeding Heart, which for years has been in a relatively cozy Roscoe Village shop, will be moving into a 125 seat spot called Bleeding Heart Bakery & Cafe. Instead of just breads and pastries, they’ll serve a full menu, including breakfast all day long. The second project is Roots, a 200-seat bar and restaurant from Weiner and Mohr, which will feature Quad City-Style Pizza. Chicago Magazine even reports that Roots will also have takeout window with slices. Both projects will open next door to each other at 1916-1924 W. Chicago Ave, and should be open by March 2011.
