Celeste goes against type and opens abruptly in River North without any pre-warning or announcement.
In December, Beyonce abruptly dropped her “surprise” album without any advance warning or fanfare. On February 3, a new restaurant called Celeste basically did the same thing in River North. I like surprises. Unlike every other restaurant in town, badgered to death with pre-opening hype, Celeste quietly and discreetly opened its doors in one of the most bustling ‘hoods in Chicago. With a name that means “heavenly” and symbolizes mystique and intrigue, it’s fitting that such an alluring question mark would make a subtle debut.
