Immensely popular Mexican restaurant L’Patron has announced that its original location at 2815 W. Diversey Ave. is permanently closed. The restaurant posted a sign on the door and posted the sign to Facebook on July 14 as well. The sign says the original location is “now resting,” but refers to L’Patron’s new location as its “new permanent home.” The new location is 3749 W. Fullerton Ave., at Fullerton and Hamlin west of Central Park Avenue.
LoganSquarist previously reported that L’Patron’s rent would be doubling from $3,000 to $6,000 monthly at the Diversey location, which suggested the restaurant might close. In 2014, L’Patron expanded the original location to incorporate the building to the west, where most of the seating was located.
The new location includes several new menu items and a large patio, as we previously reported.
