State of Savoy Truffle?

  • s

I'll be in Chi-town in two weeks, and was hoping to visit the Savoy Truffle, where I had an amazing meal about a year-and-a-half ago. According to calls to its posted phone number it has been temporarily closed, pending a move to another location. The phone number also promises that an exciting new restaurant will open in its current space. Does anyone have any news on the relocated Savoy Truffle or the new restaurant in the old ST's place?

  1. I'm guessing closed for good? Here's what is on the Tribune site:

    >This tiny, top-notch prix fixe cafe has closed
    >temporarily, pending a move to 2728 W. Armitage. As
    >of Aug. 29, management was uncertain when the
    >restaurant would reopen at the new location.

    1. Wendy (the owner, chef, waitress, and chief bottle washer) was in the process of opening her new place when she got interupted by a family crisis. However, I spoke with her recently and she should be back on track shortly. I am quite certain that it will be as fabulous as ever. Unfortunately, when you do everything yourself and something happens, you have no choice but to close for a while.
