Virus outbreak helps sack Ditka’s Chciago Gold Coast restaurant

CHICAGO (AP) – The coronavirus outbreak has contributed to the closing of Ditka’s restaurant on Chicago’s Gold Coast. Ditka’s Restaurant Group announced Monday that it will permanently close the downtown location because of the ongoing economic impact of the outbreak and the impending end of its lease. The memorabilia-filled eatery, which opened in 1997, was frequently visited by former Chicago Bears head coach Mike Ditka and other celebrities. The company said other locations will remain open, including Ditka’s in suburban Oakbrook Terrance and Grill 89 in suburban Westmont.
