Owner Rick Chey sent a note to patrons today to let them know he would turn his pizza/pasta joint into another branch of Doc Chey’s by year’s end:
I want to be the first to personally tell you that Stella will be closing at the end of the year. Although we are sad about this news, we are excited to tell you that Doc Chey’s Noodle House will open in its place.
We’re sending this announcement in advance to give you a chance to get your
Stella fix a few more times before the doors are officially closed on December 30, 2009 at 10 p.m. The location will be closed for renovations for a short time (about a month) before opening as Doc Chey’s sometime in February.
No need to say goodbye to your friends at Stella; Doc Chey’s Grant Park will be run by the same friendly crew that you’ve grown to love at Stella. The restaurant will continue to operate on the same principle of serving made-from-scratch food at affordable prices & fostering good karma by playing a proactive role in the neighborhood.
