Formerly the site of a medical marijuana compassion club, 106 Queen Street East will soon be home to The Pink Grapefruit, a new grab-and-go café. Chef and owner Tatiana Shabotynsky (George, Auberge du Pommier, L-Eat) is modelling the shop after the sort of health-focused coffee bar–grocery store hybrids she saw during a stint in the UK, like Pret A Manger. The takeout-only café is slated to open in early April, and will serve pre-prepared and made-to-order sandwiches, pantry staples, prepared meals and coffee from Chicago’s Intelligentsia.
