Penny Pollack of Dish tweeted earlier today that Michael Taus will close Zealous, his 19-year-old fine dining restaurant (which began in Elmhurst but moved to River North in 1999), after New Year’s Eve. Which means he will close one year to the day from when his mentor, Charlie Trotter, announced his closing. We interviewed Taus about Zealous, the restaurant’s longevity, and where he stood on the subject of Charlie Trotter last August; read it here. [Penny Pollack via Twitter]
