New Restaurant Heads for Azzurra Space in Wicker Park

Wicker Wire: We reported yesterday, that one of our favorite Italian eateries had closed up shop in Wicker Park. Azzurra shuttered unceremoniously on New Years Eve simply by posting a note on their door (and later posting the notice on Facebook). And now, according to report published by Eater Chicago today, it seems the owners have sold their lease in record speed at 1467 N. Milwaukee Avenue to a new restaurant. Azzurra co-owner and restaurant veteran Ron Dinella declined to comment on who has assumed the lease. He also added: that although Azzurra was done right and was a beautiful restaurant, it just wasn't right for the neighborhood.

We will keep you posted about future plans for the space.

We are very sorry to report that Azzurra EnoTavola has closed up shop in Wicker Park at 1467 N. Milwaukee Avenue. Azzurra opened in the former location of Gunner's just over a year ago in late October 2013. Not only were we big fans of the Italian eatery, they recentlyreceived a 2015 Michelin Bib Gourmand designation; no easy feat.

Notice was not provided prior to the closing. The following note was simply posted on their front door indicating their final day of service was December 31, 2014.
