If you were struck by some hunger pangs while looking over The Best Falafel in the Loop slideshow, but couldn't seem to muster the will to make the trek downtown today, you may be in luck. Olive Mediterranean Grill, which came in third place, opened its second Chicago location today in Lincoln Park. Well, actually, over the weekend we noticed a sign on the window indicating that it would open today, but we had a hard time tracking down the new phone number to make sure. (The first location wouldn't pick up its phone, either.) Luckily, thanks to some corroborating evidence from next door neighbor, NYC Bagel Deli, we confirmed that Olive Mediterranean Grill did open officially today.
