Closings Tue Jul 28 2009
Logan Square's Rustik was kind of a crapshoot of a restaurant. The dimly lit and cozy space was out of an Aspen ski lodge, but the "upscale comfort" food (I hate that concept) they served fluctuated in its quality (although they had a German butter cake on their dessert menu that was worth the visit alone). The place never seemed to be truly busy.
In late May, Rustik abruptly closed, with a sign posted on its door promising a reopening in mid-June; that date was scratched out on the sign and moved up to July 15. That date came and went, too. Now there's a sign on the window stating that Rustik will reopen as Rustico Grill in late August, and reportedly the new space will be serving Spanish fare, with involvement from a partner of Mixteco Grill.
