Tusk, the Uptown Crossing restaurant at 5513 W. North Ave., has closed.

The news was posted earlier today on the brand's Facebook page with a message that may bode well for the future.

"Tusk would like to thank all of our loyal customers over the past 3 years," the message read. "We are closing our doors. Keep watching though something awesome may be coming our way."

The eclectic restaurant operated by McBob's owner Christine McRoberts opened in November of 2018.
