Had a bizarre moment last night: As is my ritual, I go straight to the restaurant section in the Reader. This week features top spots. I get past the Trotter's of the city and there's La Cumbamba, the Colombian gem on North Avenue. Apt choice! I'm then making my paces through want ads, business opportunities, etc. and it hits me--"Restaurant for sale on Wicker Park. . . . Lacumbamba@hotmail.com"
So, it's confirmed, Restrepo is trying to sell! (Maybe those in the know knew this already.)
I tried to go last week but a sign on the window stated that the restuarant would be taking 2 weeks off.
See page 8 of Section 2 of this week's Reader if you need confirmation.
