UPTOWN — Italian and Sicilian-inspired restaurant Ceres' Table — easily one of Uptown's most acclaimed dining options — has closed and plans to move.
In an announcement posted on the restaurant's Facebook page Wednesday, Ceres' Table said it had served its last dinner at 4882 N. Clark St. on Saturday, in celebration of its fourth year at the location, and its fourth consecutive Michelin Guide Bib Gourmand award.
The owners of the "New American" restaurant, chef Giuseppe Scurato and his wife Carolyn Gordon, didn't say how long it will be until they reopen or where they might move.
They only indicated the local favorite will "move on" and said they are looking forward to seeing customers "in the New Year!"
"We have loved our space and our neighborhood, so it was a bittersweet decision to move on, although, ultimately, one that we are very excited about," Scurato and Gordon said in the message. "We are joining in partnership and moving to a new location. As information becomes available, we'll share it on our website and Facebook page."
The owners, who could not immediately be reached Wednesday, didn't say who they were "joining in partnership" with.
The Chicago Eater blog first broke the news of the restaurant's closure Tuesday, citing an interview with a restaurant spokesperson and reporting that "diners in Uptown have seen the last of the restaurant."
In Wednesday's message, the owners expressed gratitude to patrons and employees who helped make the restaurant a success and helped "bring to life our vision for serving delicious food in an understated and comfortable setting."
Gordon and Scurato also promised to honor all current Ceres' Table gift certificates and Groupon deals "in our new space" and promised to extend the deadline for using them.
