CHICAGO (WLS) -- A MICHELIN-recognized Lakeview restaurant was burglarized early Monday morning, Chicago police said.

Property was taken, and the suspect fled the scene, CPD said.

It was not immediately clear what was stolen.

No one was in custody later Monday morning, and Area Three detectives are investigating.

Dear Margaret, which describes itself as using Midwestern ingredients and French-Canadian inspiration, has been recognized with a Bib Gourmand from MICHELIN.

The restaurant posted on social media, saying a party to celebrate their second anniversary will still happen on Monday night.

"Luckily, there is little other damage to the restaurant other than the broken glass. We are otherwise ok," Dear Margaret said on Instagram.
