A River North restaurant held a candlelight vigil tonight, claiming they’re victims of racial discrimination.
The African-American owners of Nouveau Tavern claim they’ve been targeted, because they’re in a predominantly white neighborhood.
The problems came to a head, last week after a night of egging, targeting customers’ cars, followed by someone spray-painting a racial slur on the building in the middle of the night.
A company spokesman says some River North residents have complained to the alderman and police about loud crowds and garbage.
He says they’ve worked with customers to address the issues.
