Welp - looks like Covid-19 has caused another longstanding South Loop establishment to close up:
The first Yelp! review for SRO Chicago was way back in 2006. The neighborhood has changed a ton since then, but this spot has been pretty stable. To be honest, we never stepped foot inside (whoops!) and every time we walked by it seemed pretty dead.
That said, a fourteen year run is solid for a restaurant. Sad to see them go, but maybe - just maybe it will open the door for something new and different (although who knows if/when that could happen given the current state of the world right now).
