Lobo Rey Getting Closer to Opening at 1307 S. Wabash

One of the more anticipated and potentially interesting restaurants in the neighborhood is getting ready to open.  Zagat has pegged it as one of "Chicago’s 13 Most Anticipated Fall Restaurant Openings":
A Zagat 30 Under 30 alum and fourth finalist on Top Chef Mexico, Daniel Espinoza has quite the pedigree, and he's bringing it to the South Loop early fall with Lobo Rey. Offering a modern approach to Mexican cuisine, Espinoza seeks to bridge the geographic gap between Mexico and the Midwest, using influences and ingredients from the ladder to inform the menu, which includes offbeat delicacies like scallop and pig ear tacos served on freshly made tortillas prepared with a 30-year old tortilla press handed down from Espinoza's mom. The chef's wife, Jhonana Ruiz, serves as pastry chef, baking up fresh breads and churros daily.
1307 S. Wabash Ave.
Looking forward to this one...
