According to Crain's Chicago Business Michael Roper's plan to buy the building next to the Hopleaf (which houses La Donna, which is moving), and open a Mediterranean-style restaurant and bar has fallen through--the local Edgebrook Bank withdrew its financing commitment days before the scheduled closing in October.

"It would be a place, where if the Hopleaf was filled, people would feel comfortable going there instead," he says.

Roper is out the 100 grand he put down in earnest money but says he'll keep trying.
