Per a report released earlier today, the University’s Office for Community Engagement announced that the former Treasure Island location will become the new Wingers location. Wingers, the much-beloved diner specializing in American cuisine, had to close in 2018 as it outgrew its cozy location at 53rd and Kenwood due to overwhelming popularity. Confirming months of speculation, the report highlighted how natural a fit the Hyde Park Shopping Mall location would be: “While Treasure Island will be missed, we believe that this new location will uniquely satisfy the needs of the UChicago community and Hyde Park.” The report went on to note that the 20,000 square foot basement will become an Einstein Bros Bagels.
