Barely a year after opening, and shortly after the bridge collapse that shut down part of Shermer Road to vehicle traffic, McGovern's Public House on Willow Road has closed down.
Owner Declan Morgan told the Chicago Tribune that Willow Road construction dealt the final blow to the restaurant, "if I had known they'd do that work on Willow road, I wouldn't have moved in," he said.
However, the restaurant wasn't exactly a hit with customers either.
With 11 reviews, McGovern's had only two-and-a-half stars on Yelp.
