Family Selling Lovell’s of Lake Forest

Plans to open a small, more casual Highwood restaurant are moving forward still.

Family Selling Lovell’s of Lake Forest
Jay and Darice Lovell are selling their Lake Forest restaurant, along with the Waukegan Road mansion that houses it and the land it sits on, according to an article in the Lake Forester. 

The couple have owned it since they bought it from Jay's dad, astronaut Capt. James Lovell eight years ago. The family has owned the 17,000-square-foot building since 1999, the article states.

The Lovells are still moving ahead with plans to open a smaller, more casual eatery in Highwood this spring.

The Lovells will bring the hamburger, pulled pork and Reuben sandwiches to Highwood and incorporate a southern flair as well, according to a story in Forest & Bluff Magazine. Some of the homemade dishes will include comfort food like chicken meat loaf and smoked brisket.

Lovell's of Lake Forest is a more upscale restaurant, which has won Wine Spectator's Award of Excellence several times.
