An MP reader tipped us off to the fact that over the weekend, the West Loop branch of Indiana-based Cajun/Creole joint Yats quietly shuttered. A call to the restaurant turns up nothing more than a mournful outgoing voicemail: “Thanks for calling Yats. Sadly after nine months we are closing our doors. Thanks for all of you who got to make it by. Have a great summer.”
The “Yats all, folks” jokes will be refrained from at this time, out of respect for the departed.
