After opening a successful spinoff in Arlington Hts., the new owners have decided to close the original location on Diversey. The Arlington Hts. location has the same great food and service, but the room lacks the feel of the old place and the clientele is stuffier.
“Everyone started coming up to the new place,” says owner Mike Clements. “We intended to keep both, but the parking at Diversey was tough.” Budapest native Bela Olah—who worked under Louis Szathmary at The Bakery—runs the kitchen at the new(ish) spot. “He learned how to make that beef Wellington with the foie gras [$29],” says Clements.
