BAD FORTUNE: Feds Raid Uptown Restaurant

News outlets reported liberally of yesterday’s federal raids on a group of restaurants in Chinatown. None mentioned that an Uptown restaurant was raided, too.

Members of the Chicago Police Department’s Joint Terrorism Task Force executed a federal search warrant at 11AM Friday at 4832 N. Broadway, the address of Lao Sze Chuan Uptown.

Lao Sze Chuan is part of the Tony Gourmet Group chain, which had several properties targeted by police, FBI, and IRS agents yesterday.

The raids were part of an “ongoing investigation” and no arrests were made.
