Ed Sorel’s Chicago

The Second City has an incredible number of first class faces. And Ed Sorel has captured many of them in his latest mural for La Storia, a new restaurant (located in the Gold Coast at 1154 N Dearborn) in Chicago. Gabe Garza, owner of La Storia and other Chicago restaurants saw Sorel’s storied mural at Waverly Inn “and wanted me to do for Chicago what I had done for Greenwich Village,” Sorel told me. Here are the panels. I’m partial to Benny Goodman and Frank Lloyd Wright.
