More on the Leonidas Chocolate Opening

A couple of weeks ago we noted the impending opening of a Leonidas chocolate shop at 59 East Chicago Avenue.

One of our readers wrote in to let us know that this isn’t the first Leonidas in Chicago.  A Chicago Tribune article shows that there was once one on LaSalle Street back in the 1990’s.  We haven’t been able to track down why or when it closed, but at least it’s coming back to the city.
