Jimmy Buffett’s latest Margaritaville Cafe will open to the public on Monday with a ribbon cutting ceremony at 10 am.

“From my earliest days in the city, playing the Quiet Knight on Belmont, to the pinnacle of live performances to me, singing in front of the ivy wall at Wrigley Field, I have had a long and wonderful history and affection for the people, the music, the art and the food of the Windy City,” said Jimmy Buffett. “I have always thought of Chicago as a beach town, a pretty big one, but still a beach town.”

The restaurant had hoped to open in time for Memorial Weekend, but was delayed by about three weeks.
