Wicker Park Bucktown Insider's Guide

La Pasadita - And Then There Was One

Michael Hamrick - Friday, January 30, 2015

Wicker Wire: La Pasadita has been in the neighborhood for decades. And it's always been a little fun and interesting to ponder why there were 3 different locations on one city block. The original La Pasadita at 1141 N. Ashland Avenue opened in 1976 and closed 2 years ago. Picante owners quickly snatched up the space and today, the original La Pasadita located at 1141 N. Ashland Avenue, has become Authentaco.

That reduced the number of La Pasadita locations on that one city block from 3 to 2. And today DNAInfo is reporting that the location for La Pasadita at 1132 N. Ashland Avenue has also closed effective this month; leaving just one location on Ashland Avenue now in East Village.

The largest of the La Pasadita locations opened in 1984 and this location (1140 N. Ashland Avenue) will stay open. According to the owner, David Espinoza, business just isn't what it used to be and the lunch crowd is non-existent.

But, for now, their holding their own.
