Michigan Avenue - - THE SOURCE: SCENE -

WHO: founders/prin­ci­pals of Chicago’s Dineamic Hos­pi­tal­ity Group (dineam­ic­group.com). HOME ’HOOD: river north. rekhson: “i love how cen­trally lo­cated it is, as well as the never-end­ing abun­dance of great restau­rants, nightlife, and things to do.” stoioff: “it’s in the heart of down­town but still has a neigh­bor­hood feel.” GO-TO HANG­OUT: stoioff: “if i’m not at one of our places, i like to go to Erie Café (536 W. Erie St., 312-266-2300; eriecafe.com). it’s a block away from my home, and they have out­stand­ing lamb chops with mint jelly.” HID­DEN GEM: rekhson: “Greek­town.” stoioff: “the un­of­fi­cial dog park at Mil­ton Lee Olive Park (500 N. Lake Shore Dr.), near navy Pier—it’s a huge open field blocked by trees where i take my dog, Jarvis, to run at top speed.” FAVE AR­CHI­TEC­TURE: rekhson: “i’m a big fan of the new Chicago River Walk (chicagoriver­walk.us). it’s amaz­ing how that area has to­tally trans­formed into a beau­ti­ful part of the down­town land­scape.” stoioff: “the Crain Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Build­ing (150 N. Michi­gan Ave.). one of my fa­vorite child­hood movies is Ad­ven­tures in Babysit­ting, which fea­tures it; ev­ery time i pass it i ref­er­ence the movie to who­ever will lis­ten to me.” SUM­MER LOVE: stoioff: “We’re re­ally look­ing for­ward to open­ing our new­est venue, Barrio (65 W. Kinzie St.; bar­riochicago.com)!”
