Eater Chicago reports that the restaurant has closed for good because of "non-compliance with Illinois tax laws." What does that mean? Your guess is as good as ours, but probably it means they didn't pay their taxes.
The Lincoln Park location opened back in March of 2015, along with a teahouse called Grasswood. The teahouse shuttered after only a couple of months. It's possible that there are some business issues with the Strings team, or they just picked a very bad spot.
As of right now, while there is apparently a giant nasty sticker on the door of the Lincoln Park location, it's still featured on their website. Plus, if you subscribe to their email list, you can win a free year's ramen at the Lincoln Park location. Probably not such a good deal anymore.
