Barnaby’s Reopening Remains Unknown

Since the start of the pandemic, Barnaby’s of Des Plaines, 636 E. Touhy Ave., has remained closed.

The Journal recently received calls from readers wanting to know when the pizzeria would reopen.

A post on the Barnaby’s of Des Plaines Facebook page dated September 27, 2021 said they planned to reopen this summer. Nothing has been posted since.

An article in the Journal from September 2020 reported of a possible reopening of Barnaby’s during what was going to be Phase 5 of “Restore Illinois”.

In the article it states that representatives of Barnaby’s ownership planned for the restaurant to remain closed until Illinois fully reopened from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Journal has been unable to reach owners of the Des Plaines location. Until then, pizza lovers of Des Plaines will have to stand by, hungry for more.
