Just received email thanking Elmhurst for the last 13 years and saying Cafe Amano is now closed. The email says something like stay tuned for something new in this space.

They were very agreeable about doing my whitefish without pecans and they fixed it very nicely. Our friend's vegetable appetizer was beautiful with asparagus, red Peppers, and three other veggies nicely presented. And they had nice wines.

Friendly, helpful, knowledgeable staff. Food was very good, but not served piping hot. Appetizers were delicious, the smoked salmon was presented very well.
