A restaurant name with a long history on Evanston’s west side is reportedly reopening this morning.

Ted’s Restaurant at 1824 Crain St. is back in business, according to the Dewey-Darrow Neighborhood Association’s mailing list, under the ownership of the same family that ran it years ago — before leasing it out to several different managements in recent years.

The place has been shuttered for many months and has recently undergone substantial renovation work as the owners sought a new city permit for the operation.

Word is you’ll be able to get breakfast and lunch at the diner-style establishment with prices for some items starting around a buck.

Neighbors who’ve been around a while say Ted’s dates back to when the Clayton-Mark manufacturing plant operated on what’s now the Evanston Plaza site at Dempster Street and Dodge Avenue and it provided meals to truck drivers making deliveries at the plant.
