When the iconic downtown diner Pat's Place closed in May, the community was at a loss.
Many enjoyed the restaurants comfortable seats, food and the charming owner, Pat Bellos. Located at 5025 Oakton St., the business closed on May 26 due to disagreements on a variety of issues with the landlord, Bellos said.
Downtown Skokie has seen a variety of changes in the last few years. Most recently, a newly built CTA station has brought life to businesses near the intersection of Skokie Boulevard and Oakton Street, not far from the now vacant building.
One local resident also said he's looking to open a coffee shop near the new station.
All that being said, we want to know: What kind of business do you want to see move into the now vacant Pat's Place?
