Rick Bayless' XOCO Plans to Reopen on Thursday After Fire

It's taking more time that originally expected

XOCO reps are targeting Thursday to re-open after a small fire forced the closure of Rick Bayless' Mexican street food restaurant in River North. Initially, management thought repairs would be complete by Saturday, but it's taking extra time.

They took to Facebook to announce the reopening date:

"It's true. We are working like crazy to reopen XOCO, but it looks like we'll be closed through Thursday, March 31. Thanks for your patience!

The fire occurred on Monday, March 21. There's a sign in River North advising customers to head to their Wicker Park location.
