Fine Dining Headed for Homewood

The old Bakers Square building has been bought with plans to transform the location into 'The Cottage on Dixie,' a fine dining restaurant.

Village President Richard Hofeld surprised everyone at the end of Tuesday night's board meeting by announcing the purchase of the old Bakers Square building in Homewood's Southgate area on Dixie Highway.

According to Hofeld, the new owners of the location (who currently wish to remain anonymous) plan to transform the spot into a fine dining restaurant named The Cottage on Dixie.

A mission statement is included in the concept drawings:

To provide a welcoming environment for gourmet dining in the South Suburbs. A place where customers and employees will be treated with courtesy and respect and a menu that offers customers ever-changing food offerings traveling the corners of the world. This establishment will strive to be environmentally responsible and to purchase organic and locally grown foods whenever possible.

We will provide more information as it becomes available.

Anyone old enough to remember The Cottage on Torrence Avenue in Cal City will remember what a wonderful "special occasion" place it was! If these owners are in any way related, that would be great news because that restaurant was wonderful! I kind of hope this new place is a little less "special occasion" so that people dine there frequently. But let's all support whatever restaurant opens on that site! Shop/dine local!
