New Mediterranean Restaurant in Lincolnwood Suffers Pipe Rupture Due to Subzero Weather

LINCOLNWOOD, Ailing. — The frigid temperatures which have descended upon Chicagoland forced a reasonably recent Mediterranean restaurant within the north suburbs to shut its doors Monday attributable to a broken pipe.

Owner Yunis Abdallah says it was within the early-morning hours Monday that his landlord alerted him to a ruptured pipe within the constructing where he runs his restaurant, Pita Bowl, at 6699 Lincoln Ave. in Lincolnwood.

Water covered the dining room floor and gushed out the front door. Fortunately, there have been only a couple of inches of water, most of it cleaned up by later Monday morning.

Lincolnwood Fire Department Battalion Chief Bryan Graham said the subzero weather conditions were the offender for the pipe break.

“These temperatures can wreck havoc with pipes in any form of residential or business constructing,” Graham said.

Pita Bowl is a Mediterranean restaurant that’s only been open since November. So that is Abdallah’s first winter in business and the primary time he’s experienced a pipe rupture firsthand.

“It’s just pain,” Abdallah said. “It’s not expected. You simply want to return to an everyday day to open up your personal business. We began getting customers, because we make really good things.

“We were just waiting for them, but we get that cold, and also you see all the issues, like pipe problems.”

Nonetheless, Abdallah says Pita Bowl didn’t sustain much damage from the pipe burst, so he hopes to open again Tuesday.
