In "news of the day that makes us cry," we just found out that West Town Tavern, which recently celebrated its 11th anniversary, is closed as of today.

The owners, Drew and Susan Goss, posted the following message to their facebook page:

To our guests-

West Town Tavern has closed its doors. Thank you for all of your support, encouragement and downright love. We are proud to have been a part of Chicago’s vibrant dining scene for the last eleven years and now it’s time for us to explore other opportunities. Look for a change at 1329 West Chicago Avenue.

All the best,

Drew and Susan Goss

We've been fans of WTT since we first moved to Chicago, and Susan Goss's pub chips and pot roast were two of our favorite comfort food dishes in the city. We've reached out to Goss for more details—stay tuned. In the meantime, if you need a West Town Tavern fix, buy Susan's book here.
