Ada Street, Dusable Museum, Soho House: Kavi Gupta’s Chicago

By Whitewaller

September 27, 2018

All this week, we’re covering the EXPO fair and surrounding events in Chicago. To give you an insider look at the city, we’re talking to a few exceptional Chicagoans who are sharing their favorite spots to dine, drink, play, and see art. Up next, we have gallerist Kavi Gupta.

WHERE TO EAT AND SIP:
Ada Street—my go-to for consistently great food and an even greater atmosphere, you even get to choose a record to listen to while you dine (Rolling Stones-Some Girls) so for me, it’s a Chicago must. It’s owned by the DMK Restaurant Group and we love all that they do! Momotaro is also a wonderful meal—greatest sushi in the city with amazing design and service.

WHERE TO SEE ART:
I’m so excited about all the fantastic Art Design Chicago projects this fall, especially The Smart Museum of Art‘s “The Time Is Now: Art Worlds of Chicago’s South Side 1960-1980,” “Hairy Who, 1966-69” at the Art Institute, “South Side Stories—The Art & Influence of Dr. Margaret T. Burroughs, 1960-1980” at the DuSable Museum of African American History, and of course “AFRICOBRA 50” curated by one of the co-founders of the group in honor of AFRICOBRA‘s 50th anniversary, which opens at our Elizabeth Street Gallery this weekend!

WHERE TO HAVE FUN AND RELAX:
I’m a classic car fanatic so I love going to Cooper Technica—the premier post-war French car restoration facility, which is like a mini-museum and library dedicated to the historical preservation of the most famous coach-built automobiles. I also love the screening room at Soho House Chicago.
