WHEATON – After having a presence in downtown Wheaton for 27 years, Front Street Cantina at 112 N. Hale St. plans to close its doors by mid-February.
The restaurant originally opened on Jan. 31, 1991, at 127 W. Front St. as Front Street Cocina.
Wheaton had prohibited the use of the word "cantina," according to a poster in the restaurant's window announcing the closing of Front Street Cantina. The city at one time was a dry community and did not allow establishments to sell alcohol.
The poster invites customers to "come celebrate the end of an era before mid-February 2018."
