Vote Now for Chicago’s Saddest Shutter of the Year

Choose the closed restaurant you miss the most

Which restaurant that hung up its pans made Chicagoans sad the most?

Welcome to day five of the ninth annual Eater Awards, honoring the most esteemed restaurants, bars, chefs, and more in cities across the world. Here’s how the Eater Awards work: All 24 Eater cities and the national site will award prizes in multiple categories, including but not limited to Restaurant of the Year, Chef of the Year, and Design of the Year. In each category, editors will choose an editor’s choice winner and readers will vote for a reader’s choice winner — all to be announced on December 5. Editor’s choice winners will receive an illustrious tomato can trophy, as is the tradition around here.

Now, without any further ado, it’s time to vote for the reader’s choice winner in the Saddest Shutter of the Year category. Polls will be open for 24 hours and will be strictly policed for funny business. Choose wisely:
