Grace , a Celebrated Chicago Restaurant , Closes After Its Founders Leave. Grace , a Chicago restaurant considered to be one of America’s best places to dine, closed abruptly on Wednesday after the chef and the general manager announced they were no longer working there.
Their departures came after failed attempts from Duffy and Muser to buy the restaurant from the majority stakeholder. On Wednesday, would-be customers told Eater Chicago that Grace called them on the same day to tell them that their Tuesday reservations had been cancelled: the kitchen was closed .
Chef Curtis Duffy and Michael Muser, who presided over three-Michelin-star Grace restaurant before departing in a bitter partnership dispute, and who were locked out of the Chicago market for more than 18 months by a non-compete clause, will open a new restaurant in Fulton Market in early 2020.
Mr. Duffy , 43, is already known for best-evers. He grew up in central Ohio and came up through some of Chicago’s premier restaurants.
