After more than three decades in Evanston, the Davis Street Fishmarket restaurant, at 501 Davis St., has closed.
The restaurant's owners announced the closure over the weekend on their website, saying in part:
"We are fortunate to have had such a great run, and we’re extremely proud of it. The restaurant business has changed in Evanston; when we opened we were one of only a handful of restaurants, and that number has dramatically changed.
"Nobody ever said the restaurant business is easy. It is a daily battle to keep your head above the water line. It’s also rewarding, creative and enjoyable. Throwing a daily party for people is really fun. Now, it’s time to wrap it up and sell the restaurant."
