Open and closed: Cinco de Mayo edition

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

In honor of Cinco de Mayo, we’ve got a plethora of Mexican-themed openings:


Fonda Del Gusto – A Logan Square taqueria gets a décor and menu upgrade and becomes a quaint little BYOB.

FDM – The sister restaurant of Logan Square’s Fonda del Mar is much of the same, only brighter and, um, Mexican-ier. Also BYOB, for now.

Los Moles – When the restaurant is named Los Moles and the owner is known as the “Mole King” (Geno Bahena), let’s just say you know what kind of sauce you should get.

… And some gringo openings:

Five Guys Burgers & Fries – Cross Naperville off the list of places for the burger quintet to conquer.

Wally & Agador’s Gourmet Café – Restaurant Michael owner Michael Lachowicz named his new place after his dogs. Yeah, not sure how we feel about that.


LaTache – After a short closure for renovations, the French bistro in Andersonville is back and chic as ever.


Patty’s Diner – The diner, which planned to close this month, gets a reprieve at least until early June. Better get up to Skokie sooner rather than later.

Ian’s – The Northbrook hot dog stand makes way for a Wolfy’s, which should be coming later this month.

Check back here every Tuesday with more openings and closings (and snarky comments, of course). And be sure to check out Centerstage Chicago's list of new restaurants and bars.
