Popular Prospect Heights Thai restaurant, Look by Plant Love House, located at 622 Washington Avenue, at Pacific Street, is officially closed for good.
Earlier this month, the restaurant had posted to Instagram lamenting how hard it was to run a restaurant during the pandemic, and alluded to shuttering another restaurant. At the time, the team told Eater that Look by Plant Love House was closed indefinitely, but were still in lease negotiations to try and save the space. Now, Look by Plant Love House has confirmed that that they couldn’t come to an agreement with their landlord.
Manadsanan Sutipayakul opened Plant Love House in Elmhurst with her two daughters and son back 2015, where they became especially known for num tok, a Thai noodle soup made with pork blood. Less than a year later, Sutipayakul relocated the restaurant to Prospect Heights. In summer 2021, the Plant Love House team announced that they’d be shuttering their third restaurant, Mondayoff in Kensington, after five years in operation. The team’s most recent operation, Noods n’ Chill, which opened in early 2020 at 170 South Third Street, at Driggs Avenue, is the last outpost that remains. The team told Eater that they have no plans to open another restaurant again.
