Another favorite of Chicago’s restaurant scene falls victim to the pandemic.
The acclaimed veggie-friendly restaurant is the latest victim of the lockdown which continues to have permanent repercussions in the city’s restaurant and bar scene. ” While several outliers factored into this decision, ultimately we could not continue to withstand the realities of operating this business during a global pandemic,” said owner Heisler Hospitality via Instagram.
Owners of Bad Hunter went on to say their goodbyes on their heartfelt Instagram post, thanking both customers and staff:
“We want to say thank you to our guests: for supporting us and for allowing us to do what we love. We’re humbled by the encouragement you’ve shown us throughout the years and we’re honored to have played a part in your lives.”
“And, to our staff (past and present): Bad Hunter would not have been what it was without each and every one of you. A restaurant is only as great as the people who fill it, and by that metric we were exceptional.”

The “veg-forward” Bad Hunter made wide veggie-friendly menus a reality with its creative and tasty options and became a staple of fun-dining for omnivores and vegetarians alike.
Heisler hopes to continue serving its customers at their other locations around Chicago including West Loop’s Lone Wolf, their dive-bar on Randolph St. and its newest addition, Pizza Lobo in Logan Square.
