Maison Brasserie closing the 30th. Drohomyreckys also leaving Eggy's behind. Cite tough location. Sue-Kim going to Lettuce (Mon Ami Gabi).— Steve Dolinsky (@stevedolinsky) March 20, 2013
It's location, location, location, that led to the demise of Maison. As Grubstreet Chicago pointed out, it's a bit hard to get to Maison and that strange Lakeshore East neighborhood (that doesn't actually exist) is not bustling enough to keep even a good restaurant open. We had high hopes that a summer of Millenium Park events might be enough to keep a restaurant located so close to the action alive, but no such luck.
