Coming Soon: El Diamante Azul Brings Its Popular Mexican Food to Uptown

the future home of El Diamante Azul

Edgewater's loss is Uptown's gain. The much-loved family-owned restaurant El Diamante Azul is closing its doors on the 5600 block of Clark and will be moving south, to the 4400 block of Broadway.

A sign in its window tells the tale.

Its upcoming location is 4431 Broadway, most recently the home of Halal Taco (and Tolotzin before that), just a couple doors away from the Tattoo Factory.

El Diamante Azul has been delighting patrons with its delicious and reasonably priced authentic Mexican food since 2010, and we look forward to having them right here in the neighborhood. 

Check out the Facebook page while we wait for its Grand Opening.

And visit them in Edgewater on Thursday if you'd like to tell them "Welcome to Uptown" in person. It's their last day at that location.


  1. Bet nobody remembers the old great greasy spoon days of the early 1960s on Of awrence Ave. when we USED to have The Ritz Grill between Winthrop and Beacon on the South side of the street. The little white shack with a red roof which had maybe 12 stools and no booths! Talk about great Cheeseburgers! Those were the days back then! YEEHAW!

  2. Sorry, gang. The above location of Ritz Grill back in the MEANT to say Lawrence Ave. between Winthrop & Kenmore. GREAT MEMORIES!
