Clarke’s opened its doors in 1985 in beautiful downtown Evanston. It is a family owned business now owned and operated by Yolanda Ewing.
The original Clarke's off Campus restaurant was located across the south campus of Northwestern University, Clarke’s has served locals as well as, senators, presidents, movie stars, college students and locals from all over the world and had also the pleasure of being visited by a Princess and of course, the GOAT, Muhammad Ali. Clarke’s has served well over 10,000,000 customers over 33 years in business. In August 2019 Clarke's moved to a new location about a block away to 804 Davis and is now ready to serve a whole crop of new foodies.
