    That's a lovely, beyond-the-call-of-duty note from Toast. (I'm not surprised.)

    I think The Rim Seafood on Lincoln has been closed, maybe for awhile. I drove past there on the way to the Dr's Office and there was a Chinese Restaurant there. It was famous for being the seafood restaurant next to the 1st Angry Crab. Website refers to a kitchen remodel last August, phone is disconnected. The new place was called Taste of Szechuan (or "Bite" or something else). I can't find the new place with a quick Google search. Good luck to the Szechuan place.

    The Szechuan placed is "Opening Soon". I'm hoping for something decent, since it would be the closest Szechuan restaurant to my house.

    The shuttered Sally's Waffle Shoppe, 5454 N. Harlem Ave., will be replaced by the city's fourth Cozy Corner Restaurant & Pancake House, according to its former owner.

    I wonder how many of these stories we have to read before everyone gets the hint Phil Tadros is someone that you should avoid.

    I live by the Mariano Park /Viagra Triangle area. A good man had that stand for 12 years and then the City gave it to Phil. They still are awaiting their first rent payment.

    Drove by 5657 N Lincoln last night around ten, illuminated ~Open~ neon sign in the window. A few minutes of google yield a recently issued business license to "A Bite of Szechuan" at the address but no further info.

    No idea if they are actually open or hours, I did not stop but, as Steve says, it would be nice to have "decent" Szechuan in the neighborhood.

    Didn't see this, but of course O'Briens Old Town is temporarily closedbecause the building is going to be torn down for a new, larger building.

    Anyway, I just saw a new business license for a new restaurant at 1551 N Orleans, which isn't far away at North & Orleans. Guessing it's the same people opening in that space.

    While I believe it technically falls under 2016, worth mentioning the closing of Urban Belly after 7 years.

    It's actually Belly Shack that closed and it was mentioned here, in the 2016 thread.

    As is posted at the top of this thread, please exercise extreme care when posting about closings because posting erroneous information can do irreparable harm.

    Urban Belly remains open.

    Everyblock is showing a food inspection for O'Briens at 315-317 W. North Ave., the old Mizu space that's been vacant for years. I'll check it out after work to see if there's any activity going on in the space.

    Edit: 315-317 W. North is the same building as 1551 N. Orleans.

    Everyblock's news summary for Lincoln Square included a new Business License (dated Feb 6 2107) for New Asia Restaurant. So maybe they really are remodeling. Anyone have further info?

    Walked by the building yesterday. The windows of both the Mizu and Flat Top Grill spaces are papered up, which is new. Through a gap I could see what looked like new framing. A "For Lease" sign is still up in the window though.

    Three Aces closing on Sunday, 2/19, per their Facebook page. I'll miss it -- had some good food and cocktails there over the last few years, though my last couple of visits weren't great. I think Matt Troost is focused on Charlatan these days and the Three Aces kitchen suffered as a result.

    Fire Shuts Down ROCKS Lakeview Late Wednesday
    LAKEVIEW — A fire broke out Wednesday evening at ROCKS Lakeview, neighborhood haunt known for its whiskey and burgers near Boystown.

    The fire closed the restaurant at 3463 N. Broadway, ROCKS posted late Wednesday.

    "Word travels fast but if you didn't hear, we had a fire," the message read. "Everyone's safe but we'll be down for a bit. Stay tuned, folks."

    I would guess that if you went to Lane it probably has a big spot in your memories. But I think I was only there once or twice. As stevez said, much better. When I was working in the area Nemo's had a place on Ashland. They always got my money.

    But alas, I'm not. But thanks for pointing that out. If I'm ever in the area again I'm glad to know it's still there. I'm pretty sure the one on Wacker closed a long time ago. Is the one on Clark, original I assume, still open?
