Another Vegan Restaurant Closes It’s Doors in Chicago

This week Veggie Bite (1300 N Milwaukee Ave, Chicago, IL) closed it’s doors.  I spoke to Sylvia, one of the owners, and it sounds like Veggie Bite will still be around in some shape or form (like at your local grocer perhaps?) and they may even return to the restaurant business at some point in the future.

I’m sad to see them go. I will miss the chix-free nuggets and their shakes. Here’s to hoping they make a comeback soon! In the meantime, they’ll be keeping their facebook page up, so check there often for updates.
