Many Sloopers were disappointed about the recent news about Gioco closing (including us). Yes, we hear it's they are planning to re-open, but many people don't seem to have that faith.
Regardless, it appears there is some other issues at KDK restaurants. Crain's Chicago is reporting that Red Light (another KDK restaurant in the West Loop) also closed this week. Who knows what this means, but regardless our fingers are still crossed that they sort out this mess and that Gioco reopens.
This story has also received a wide amount of prominent news coverage, but we enjoyed reading the blog, The Feast, who sympathised with the South Loop residents and suggested ten solid dinning options in the Sloop.
