WICKER PARK — After less than three years in the neighborhood, an outpost of Clarke's Diner on Damen Avenue in Bucktown has shuttered.
A peek in the window of the 24-hour diner at 1704 N. Damen Ave. showed that all evidence of the diner was removed and the space appeared to be cleared out.
While the number for the restaurant appeared to not be working, Mike Quiroz, an employee at Clarke's Lincoln Park location at 2441 N. Lincoln Ave. confirmed that the diner had closed its Damen Avenue outpost.
"Sunday was our last day there," Quiroz said.
He added: "That was the end of that."
According to Quiroz, "There was a lot of business on the weekend but not enough during the week."
