Ambitious Oaxacan all-day restaurant Quiote and subterranean mezcal bar Todos Santos in Logan Square have closed, according to an Instagram post today on the restaurant’s official account. The restaurant has catered to hungry crowds at 2456 N. California Avenue for two-and-a-half years, first opening the bar and then the dining room.
“After two and a half years we are grateful for everyone who shared their time with us over food and drinks at Quiote,” the Instagram post reads. “It has been an amazing run, but it is with heavy heart that due to personal reasons, Quiote and Todos Santos have completed their last service on Sunday, August 11.”
Quiote, owned by local food truck pioneer Dan Salls, was one of the most anticipated openings of early 2017, and quickly earned critical acclaim for its drinks and varied menu offerings, including pork collar with pasilla chiles, vegetarian options like fried cauliflower with Fresno chiles, and a vast mezcal selection. The restaurant has gone on to garner Michelin Bib Gourmand awards among other accolades, and the bar, which has featured the talents of mezcal guru Jay Schroeder, is one of Eater Chicago’s essential cocktail bars.
Neither Salls nor Schroeder responded to requests for more information before press time. Stay tuned for any additional details if they become available. Block Club first reported this story.
