While imitation is the sincerest form of flattery for some, that's not the case for the owner of Evanston’s Sarkis Café, who has filed a trademark infringement lawsuit against Lincoln Park’s ‘Sarks in the Park’, WGNTV.com reported.
The lawsuit alleges Lincoln Park’s ‘Sarks in the Park’ copied the Evanston restaurant’s name and concept and serves similar menu items to those on Sarkis’ menu, such as “Loretta” sandwiches and a “Disaster Omelet”, WGNTV.com reported.
Sarkis Cafe, which has been a popular Evanston restaurant since it opened in 1965, trademarked its name in 2010, while Sarks in the Park opened in the summer of 2009, ChicagoBusiness.com reported.
Sarkis’ owner Marla Cramin says the food at Sarks in the Park has some negative reviews on Yelp and GrubHub and could reflect poorly on her restaurant, ChicagoBusiness.com reported.
