Pete’s Pub to Replace Harry’s on Brady
Brady Street restaurant closes, but another place with a guy's name will replace it.
The restaurant, located at 1234 E. Brady St., opened in 2016. It replaced Brady Street Hardware, a True Value hardware store, that had occupied the space for two decades before closing in 2015. The restaurant paid homage to the hardware store by repurposing the handsaw-shaped sign as its own.
Serving a mix of American fare with a full bar, it was the second location for Harry’s. The original location, 3549 N. Oakland Ave. in suburban Shorewood, continues to operate.
Chedid said the sale won’t impact the original Harry’s Bar and Grill, nor will it impact his other restaurant, The Knick, at 1030 E. Juneau Ave.
As to whether the new owner will change the ratio of restaurant vs. bar, that’s not clear at this point.
Why is he coming back? “Time’s right,” said Marshall. “My kids are getting older.” His youngest is now one. He said he’s known Chedid for years and the opportunity was right for both of them.
“We’re both happy,” said Chedid of the sale.
The restaurant space is located in the first floor of a three-story building owned by Dominion Properties.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Marshall said he is in the process of securing a new license for the space.
