The Original Pancake House in Lincoln Park is moving.
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.

UKRAINIAN VILLAGE— The Cotton Duck, the art gallery/restaurant that opened in September 2015 at 939 N. Damen Ave., has closed. The phone number is disconnected and social media accounts have been taken down. Owner/chef Dominic Zumpano wasn’t reached for comment.

LINCOLN PARK— The Original Pancake House is moving out of their Lincoln Park subterranean location. The restaurant at 2020 N. Lincoln Park West is on the real estate market, and a staff member said they’re moving in May. Looks like they’re staying near Lincoln Park because back in October, DNAinfo reported they reached an agreement to take over the former Panera space at 616 W. Diversey Pkwy. Three other Chicago locations of the chain remain open.

WEST TOWN/NOBLE SQUAREShaman By Chilam Balam closed around Thanksgiving at 1438 W. Chicago Ave. For those wanting Mexican small plates, the original Chilam Balam in Lakeview remains open.

EVANSTON— The Alcove, a tiny, cash-only cocktail spot that opened in 2012, has called it quits at 512 Main St. in Evanston. Ownership made the announcement via Facebook.
