Gioco to Reopen in the South Loop?

In a story posted to Crain's ChicagoBusiness this afternoon, it was announced that KDK Restaurants is shutting down Wes Loop restaurant, Red Light, but will reopen Gioco.

When exactly Gioco will reopen is uncertain. A message on S.Wabash Italian eatery's answering machine says they hope to be open in a few weeks. The message goes on to apologize for any inconvenience and thanks customers for their patronage. A message on the restaurant's answering machine on Friday said they were experiencing a water problem and would be open today.

Red Light was operating with an expired state business license. Gioco had its license revoke for falling behind on employee withholding and state taxes. At the KDK Web site, it's business as usual, with no mention that Gioco or Red Light are closed.

The KDK empire used to be comprise of such high-end restaurants as Opera, Marché, and Le Lan and Soul. Opera closed in December, Le Lan and Soul closed down in May 2009, and Marché in June.
