A popular restaurant that specializes in Caribbean cuisine has permanently closed its Maywood location and moved to Northlake.
The inside of Tropical Time Jerk Chicken, 1117 S. 1st Ave. in Maywood — the restaurant featured in an episode of Chicago’s Best in 2015 — was dark and empty on Oct. 9.
Multiple calls to the restaurant were met with a voice prompt that indicated that the restaurant had permanently closed and moved to 22 W. Lake St. in Northlake, between Lake and Wolf.
The new location, the voice prompt noted, is scheduled to open Tuesday, Oct. 16.
A sign posted in the door of the shuttered restaurant notes that the “building’s owner plans on a new restaurant opening here after renovations are completed in 2019.” VFP
