LAKEVIEW — No more beef at 1034 W. Belmont Ave.
The owners of Indie Burger, a hamburger restaurant that prided itself on organic and local ingredients, were evicted from their Belmont and Kenmore store last week. It opened in March 2012.
IB1 Investment LLC, owner of Indie Burger, ultimately owed management company Glascott Associates $50,426, according to Cook County court records. Owner Cyrus Rab and his companies had been in court with the building since last November, records show.
The restaurant was well-reviewed for both its grass-fed beef burgers and unique decor, which included pews from a South Side-based Haitian church and reclaimed Minnesota barn wood.
In a glowing review, Tribune food critic Monica Eng noted that several restaurants had failed at the corner in recent years.
"Indie may just have what it takes to break the curse," Eng wrote. "I hope I didn't just jinx it."
