A prominent restaurant space along Logan Square Park is about to be vacated as Dunlays on the Square has closed after 13 years. The restaurant’s ownership, 4 Star Restaurant Group, made the announcement on Monday via Facebook. The spot is a sibling to Dunlays on Clark, the restaurant in Lincoln Park. Sunday was the Logan Square restaurant’s last day.
“Thank you for being a part of our journey. We will miss our Logan Square neighbors and community. Please stay in touch and visit our sister restaurants,” a Facebook post read. No reason was given for the shutter. A message to a 4 Star spokesperson wasn’t immediately returned.
Dunlays was a neighborhood restaurant that helped anchor Logan Square before most restauranteurs took notice of the area, which is now one of the trendiest dining and drinking neighborhoods in Chicago. The restaurant, 3137 W. Logan Boulevard, stands just off Logan Square Park in between Kedzie and Milwaukee. A few doors down, the space that once housed Johnny’s Grill and Mezcaleria Las Flores, also stands vacant.
The restaurant’s named for Michael Dunlay, 4 Star’s founder. His company is about to open a Wrigleyville location of its Smoke Daddy barbecue. If the company adds more details, this post will be updated.
