UPTOWN — The co-owner of Tapas Las Ramblas said Thursday his Spanish tapas joint will most likely close in Uptown — for good
The doors of the restaurant at 5101 N. Clark Street have been closed to patrons this week.
As of Thursday afternoon, a sign a posted on the doors asked passersby to "visit our friends," Twist a Tapas Cafe, 3412 N. Sheffield.
Tapas Las Ramblas co-owner Michael Moore was mostly tight-lipped about his restaurant's future, but did tell DNAinfo.com Chicago that the closure is likely for good.
“It’s a 90 percent chance that it’s permanently," he said. "And that’s all I can say."
No further details were immediately available, including the exact date the restaurant shut its doors, and why it might close.
As of Thursday, the restaurant's phone number was disconnected.
The restaurant was formerly Il Fiasco, an Italian restaurant also owned by the Moores before they closed it and replaced it with Tapas Las Ramblas in 2008.
