Chicago magazine ranks the 50 most powerful Chicagoans, including Hyde Park's Erick Williams:
"Winner of the James Beard Award for best chef in the Great Lakes region and named by Nation’s Restaurant News as its innovator of the year in 2023, Williams has quickly become one of the city’s most respected chefs and perhaps the public face of its food scene. Operating four popular South Side restaurants (Virtue, Daisy’s Po-Boy and Tavern, Mustard Seed Kitchen, and Top This Mac N’ Cheese), with another celebrating Mexican culture in the works, Williams is celebrated not just for bringing exceptional Southern cooking to town but for mentoring young Black culinary talent, notably Damarr Brown, his chef de cuisine at Virtue."

"Deeply moved by the success and the outpouring of support regarding the last Chess Night at the Cove Lounge, we have decided to add a new wrinkle to what is already a wonderful community-building event. Part of our motivation for hosting such an event was to honor the memory of Diego Damis—the beloved bartender at the Cove Lounge who tragically passed away. We have heard countless stories about how Diego was passionate about chess and would spread his love of the game to all, teaching everyone who would come into the bar.
As part of our next Chess Night on 2/20 at 8:00 pm (almost two years after Diego’s death), we will partner with the Hyde Park Neighborhood Club (HPNC) to start a scholarship fund for their excellent Chess-ed Enrichment Program that happens at HPNC. This way, underserved youth will get the opportunity to play, study, and cultivate the same love for this beautiful game that Diego had. On top of the funds raised here, the owner of the bar, Sonnie Kireta, has graciously pledged to put 50% of the bar revenue made during the chess night towards the fund, all in Diego’s name."
