Nando’s PERi-PERi, the South African-Portuguese restaurant known for its spicy flame-grilled chicken, is opening Hyde Park location this Saturday, January 14 at 1447 E 53rd Street. The dining area will feature earthy textures and bright colors along with South African artwork including a corrugated-metal mural that was hand-painted in Hyde Park by South African street artist Kilmany-Jo Liversage. To celebrate, proceeds from opening-day sales will be donated to the high school to help fund college visits for the students.

Stop by between 11am and 10pm and present a valid University of Chicago ID to enjoy a free spicy flame-grilled 1/4 chicken, chicken sandwich, wrap, or pita. Dine in only.
