Iconic Restaurant to permanently close after 10 years of business
Dusek’s Tavern and Dining Room, a beloved neighborhood gem in Pilsen, will be shutting its doors for good at the end of the year. The restaurant, a fixture inside Thalia Hall at 1807 S. Allport St. since 2013, has announced that New Year’s Eve will be its final day of service.
Dusek’s, owned by hospitality group 16″ On Center, which also operates establishments like Empty Bottle and Revival Food Hall, has yet to reveal the specific reasons behind its closure. The company’s representatives could not be immediately reached for comment.
Despite the closing, Thalia Hall, Tack Room, and Punch House – the other businesses housed within the entertainment complex – will remain open for business.
Dusek’s garnered widespread acclaim during its nine-year run, earning a Michelin star in 2016. The restaurant’s rustic ambiance, coupled with its delectable menu of Czech-inspired cuisine, had earned it a loyal following among Pilsen residents and visitors alike.
As the final days of operation draw near, Dusek’s is extending a heartfelt thank you to its patrons for their unwavering support over the years. The restaurant urges its fans to visit and savor its signature dishes one last time before it bids farewell. At this point in time it is not known what will be replacing Dusek’s in the long-term.
