After 10 years, Amy Morton is planning to close her Evanston restaurant, Found Kitchen, on Oct. 3.
That’s the word Tuesday afternoon from Eater. It says the closing is timed to match the end of Morton’s lease for the space.
The property’s owners are hoping to demolish the building at 1621 Chicago Ave. to make way for a high-rise residential development at 1621 Chicago Ave. that has yet to win city approval.
Morton will continue to operate The Barn Steakhouse in Evanston and Stolp Island Social in Aurora and says she has plans for a new project that she hopes will allow her to employ some of Found’s workers.
