Ava is closed

Ava, the Italian BYOB at Third and Gaskill Streets, has closed just shy of six years, owner Michael Campagna confirms.

He acknowledged that he had fallen behind in rent -- the economy had hurt business -- and that the landlord took over the space. Based on my perusal of court records, Ava also owes the state for a few thousand in back taxes.

Campagna teaches at the Art Institute.
