[ARCHIVED] Acclaimed Restaurant Expanding to Skokie

The owner of the acclaimed Chicago Hyde Park restaurant Ascione Bistro is bringing their comfortably elevated Italian-focused concept north to anchor the new ground floor restaurant space at the Highpoint at 8000 North in Skokie.

Ownership is excited to bring their energetic brand to the vibrant, diverse and growing Skokie community and to make the new Ascione Skokie a dining destination for Chicago and the North Shore, continuing their focus on exquisite attention to details from the food, to the service, to the atmosphere. The new restaurant will be prominently located on the northwest corner of Lincoln Avenue and Oakton Street in Downtown Skokie.

In addition to Ascione Skokie, ownership will also open their first casual, deli, Ascione Café, a sister casual quick-service concept that will anchor the west side of the Highpoint Motor Court and offer a variety of coffees, pastries, sorbet, salads, and sandwiches in a fast-casual, grab-and-go environment.

The buildout of both spaces is currently underway, and represents a more than $1.7 million investment in Skokie. With the substantial capital expenditures required to develop the highly visible and important space into a Downtown Skokie dining destination, the Ascione Skokie restaurant buildout will be supported by $153,500 from the Village’s Downtown Science & Technology TIF Interior and Exterior Rehabilitation Programs. Grant funding will be provided on a rebate basis after all work is completed and the restaurant is operational. The Village Board approved funds at their meeting on July 17.

Both restaurants are anticipated to open in fall 2023.
