It's finally almost time for Rick Bayless to bring tortas and Mexican hot chocolate to the Wicker Park masses. The iconic chef tells the Tribune that opening day for his second, larger Mexican street food cafe, Xoco, will happen on August 12.
As previously reported, this Xoco, in the former Salud tequila lounge space, will be full-service, sell craft beer and wine, and utilize the large side patio. Bayless also tells the Trib that the focus will be on food, not liquor. Much more to come.
