As of Dec. 1, Zapatista, 992 Willow Road, Northbrook, shut its doors to the public.

According to the location’s general manager Sean Sorensen, employees were told just after Thanksgiving that Nov. 30 would be the restaurant’s final day operating in Northbrook.

“It just came down to the fact that the lease was up and the [restaurant] owner decided that he didn’t want to renew the lease at that time,” Sorensen said. “To the best of my knowledge, I’m not sure if he’s going to reopen it or not, but as of right now, it is closed.”

When Rabbi Aaron Melman first stepped foot in Congregation Beth Shalom, he knew he’d found his home. That was 13 years ago, when the rabbi was just out of rabbinical school at The Jewish Theological Seminary, in New York City. At the time, he was interviewing for a position as an assistant rabbi, which he eventually received.

“I fell in love with the community. It was really the one place I wanted to be,” said Melman, a Northbrook resident.

The much-anticipated House 406 restaurant opened in downtown Northbrook Saturday, July 26, to a packed house.  
A lot of Chicago buzz was built up around the new local eatery, located at 1143 Church St.,  because of owner Jennifer Eisen, a Northbrook native and current resident who recently ended her tenure with city treasure Girl and the Goat restaurant. Eisen was known as Stephanie Izard's "right-hand woman" even as Eisen launched her first venture, El Mexican restaurant in Glenview, two years ago.
But House 406 is decidedly different from El, as she calls it.
