When Concept Restaurants decided to take on the space that once held the iconic Strings and transform it into Humboldt, the company was taking a risk -- even though it’s headed by veteran restaurateur Frank Day, founder of Old Chicago, Rock Bottom and other non-chain restaurants, including Ignite and Rialto Cafe. “This was a legendary space that had a legendary restaurant,” says Sean Huggard, operations director for Concept. “We did need to put effort into it to do right by this restaurant.” That meant consulting Strings founder Noel Cunningham’s widow, Tammy, through construction; it also meant retaining elements of the original space. Just as important, it meant coming up with a concept that, like Strings, would appeal to the neighborhood and make everyone feel welcome.
