Tusk, a great little bar-restaurant in Washington Heights (5513 W. North Ave.), is no longer. The news came via a Facebook post from the restaurant on Aug. 20:
Tusk would like to Thank all of our loyal customers over the past 3 years. We are closing our doors. Keep watching though something awesome may be coming our way.

I reached owner Christine McRoberts – also the proprietor of McBob’s Pub and Grill (4919 W. North Ave.) – by email. She said diners can expect something new in the space this fall.
McRoberts says “many things” played into the closing of Tusk, including Covid-19, but “most of all and possibly the wrong concept for the location.” As for the future, she says she plans to open a new place in that spot, with a new name, “sometime in October. We are still in the early stages of planning so can’t say much more at this point.”
