Management's aiming for an April opening at 1212 S. Michigan Ave., according to a restaurant spokesman. The 5,000-square-foot restaurant will have two levels, 180 seats and an 100-seat outdoor patio. Aurelio's applied for its liquor license and outdoor patio permit on Thursday. Expect an expanded version of a menu familiar to South Siders, as well as more — you guessed it — craft beer selections made available to wash down your slices.It looks pretty nice and definitely a major upgrade to this prime corner retail space. It's also slightly comical that the second floor patio will be right in front of the Snap Fitness windows. Nothing more motivating for people on treadmills, then watching people scarf down pizza.
