Niko's Lodge Leases Former Barley House Building
This will be the Wasco-based restaurant's second location.
It's not even been three months since Barley House closed its doors in June, and another restaurant already has snapped up the property.
Inland Real Estate, the company that owns and manages Algonquin Commons, announced Wednesday, Sept. 7, that Niko’s Lodge, a wilderness-themed steak and seafood restaurant, will open in late October. This will be the restaurant’s second location.
“One of the many great things about Algonquin Commons is the restaurant variety,” said Scott Carr, president of property management for IRC in a statement. “Niko’s Lodge will provide Algonquin Commons guests with yet another great dining choice.”
Niko Kanakaris, a Huntley villlage trustee and Jacobs High School graduate, owns Niko's Lodge in Wasco and multiple restaurants in the area, including the Thirsty Whale and Niko's Grill and Pub in Huntley.
