What’s next for Kevin Heisner and Matt Eisler, the duo behind [node:33969 link=Bar DeVille;] and the forthcoming [node:14985795 link=Trenchermen;]? Once again, they’re teaming up with Duchamp owners Jason Freiman and Nick Podesta (with whom they own Bangers & Lace). This time it’s for a retro sports bar, where two projectors show the game, an antique American flag hangs from the ceiling, and the bar food includes pork rind “cheese doodles.” 1725 W Division St (773-697-4804).
