I went over there and asked why they were closing. I was told that it had to do with a need for more personal and family time, that there is a young child who needs her mom, and a mom who needs a break.

SO sorry to hear this news. I had their web page bookmarked, making it so simple to order online before heading home from work.

did anyone find out why Bogarts closed?

Bogart’s business was in decline due to the economy. The owner had also lost a lot of money when he had to close his Casablanca’s in Tinley Park. The rumor mill is that Homewood raised the liquor license substantially that also helped in his decision.

"The Rickshaw" was fantastic. We ordered from there a couple times a month. We ordered ONCE after it became The Thai Rickshaw. Not even close. Big disappointment. Golden Buddha also is missed. Great eggrolls. We've been using New Bejing 163rd and Halsted. We like it.

In my opinion Eat Rice created a serious competition. We love Eat rice.
