Lights Out in the West Loop: Red Light Closes

Red Light at 820 W. Randolph St has closed its doors according to an article in today's Crain's ChicagoBusiness. Just like it's sister restaurant, Gioco, a sign posted on the door Wednesday announced that it was closed. The reason for its closing: an expired state license. Gioco closed its doors on Wednesday too, for falling behind on employee withholding and sales tax payments.

Red Light was a popular pan-Asian restaurant located in the West Loop.

This is another blow to KDK Restaurants, Inc. Jerry Kleiner who said Gioco would be reopening is saying the same about Red Light, although now, he's directing all questions to his lawyer Howard Davis, a KDK partner as is Kleiner.

Gioco's closing was another in a list of restaurant closings on S. Wabash Ave. First Ole' Hardwood closed due to a fire that was called suspicious on December 30, 2010; Opera, another KDK restaurant closed it's doors after dinner service the following day.

In the West Loop, Marché also owned by KDK closed June 13, 2010 after 17 years at 833 W. Randolph St.
