Ben Schiller Departs Boka for Berkshire Room

In other bartender news, Ben Schiller announced he is leaving Boka Restaurant Group to work with Fifty/50 Restaurant Group. His main focus will be the group’s latest project at Acme Hotel called the Berkshire Room. He will also oversee the cocktail program at the seasonal rooftop restaurant, Homestead. In addition to the new gig, Schiller plans to open his own concept with some bartender friends, according to Chicago Reader. It will be “essentially like an old-man bar.” Schiller wants to fill a void in Chicago with a bar with innovative cocktail where one can "bring your uncle from Wisconsin who's a welder."
