What comes next is unclear

Ashok Selvam is the editor of Eater Chicago and a native Chicagoan armed with more than two decades of award-winning journalism. Now covering the world of restaurants and food, his nut graphs are super nutty.

There's some surprising news out of Logan Square, as Analogue founders Robert Haynes and Henry Prendergast will no longer be involved in the day-to-day operations at the cajun restaurant and cocktail bar. Prendergast wouldn't share the reasons behind the pair's departure.

The duo, who are former Violet Hour bar directors, opened Analogue three years ago. Prendergast said he can't talk about any changes that's happening at Analogue, aside from that they won't be involved in the bar program or any other part of operations. After working in bars for the last decade, Prendergast said he's happy to relax and enjoy the summer. He'll hang with family and friends for a bit before plotting his next move. They'll hang on to a small piece of equity in the restaurant.

UPDATE: Chef Alfredo Nogueira confirmed he's also leaving. He said he'll travel and return to Chicago in July when he also figure what he'll do next.
