You won't find chips and salsa at Chilli Beans, so don't drop in for a midday fiesta when it opens. In fact, its products have nothing to do with peppers or legumes. Instead, Chilli Beans is a Brazilian eyewear company that's opening up shop on Lincoln Road.
The brand sends eyeglasses, sunglasses and watches, and almost everything ranges between $35 and $80. It's that sweet spot: not exactly $300 Gucci frames, and not exactly $14 Forever 21 toss aways either. We reached out to the company to inquire about an opening date, so we'll let you know when we find out.
