On the heels of the news of L20 shuttering, another Michelin-starred restaurant is calling it quits on New Year's Eve. Takashi, the recipient of multiple accolades since opening in 2007, is closing at the end of the year, the Trib first reported.
Takashi took over the former Scylla space in 2007, a freestanding Bucktown brownstone that was Stephanie Izard's former stomping grounds. It was one of Esquire's best new restaurants that year. Chef/owner Takashi Yagihashi tells the Trib that it's a "personal decision" and that he's concentrating on other projects.
With Takashi closing soon along with two-Michelin-starred L20, as well as the two-Michelin-starred Graham Elliot closing last new year's eve, three of Chicago's finest establishments from last year's Michelin Guide are gone or are about to be. Stop by Takashi before the end of the year to try dishes that were some of Yagihashi's greatest hits.
