LA GRANGE - The backlash from conronavirus has caused one La Grange restaurant to shut its door permanently.

La Buona Vita, 15 W. Calendar Ave., announced Monday that it was shutting its doors after six years in downtown La Grange.

“After thoughtful analysis and a heavy heart, it is with great disappointment we inform you that effective immediately, our restaurant is permanently closed,” owner Jim Barron, said on the eatery’s Facebook page. “Thank you again for the opportunity to have served you.”

The overall concern about coronavirus coupled wth Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s order last week to close restaurants to and dine-in customers through March 30 “has made it the perfect storm for businesses, especially restaurant businesses, and even more so for small locally owned restaurant businesses,” Barron said.

“Disappointment and frustration become heightened when left with no choice but to close our business serving the community, a business to which we were not only passionately devoted but extremely appreciative,” Barron continued.

“For the past six years, all of us at La Buona Vita Restaurant have taken great pride in the role we have played serving high-quality northern Italian cuisine to the local community and beyond,” he said. “It has been our privilege and a pleasure to do so, and we sincerely thank you for that opportunity.”
