Charlatan, Noble Square’s charming pasta-focused restaurant, is closing on Saturday. The restaurant made the announcement in a Facebook post, and Saturday ends a three year-run at 1329 W. Chicago Ave. The shutter comes eight months after ownership closed Three Aces, their standout bar/restaurant off Taylor Street.

“We are most grateful to out loyal regulars and amazing staff,” the Facebook statement read. “We would like to invite each and [everyone] of you to come and say good-bye...”.

Lyle and Jackie Aker, along with Anthony Potenzo ran the restaurant. While Three Aces was known for beer, pizza, and burgers, its younger sibling offered customers more composed dishes and wine in a rustic atmosphere.

Ownership did not return messages to talk about why the restaurant closed. That stretch of Chicago Avenue has its share of vacancies including Unite Urban Grill and Natalino’s. Meanwhile, Charlatan fans have two more nights to enjoy the fresh pastas in Noble Square.
