Ten months after a fire ripped through the more-than-century-old Old Town building that housed the restaurant, Adobo Grill re-opened last week in a new location. The Mexican restaurant has moved around the corner from its original site over to 215 W. North Ave. It's a smaller indoor space than the original, but the new one has an outdoor bar and patio with room for 50.

Last August, a fire that started at Adobo burned the restaurant at 1610 N. Wells St. and the offices at neighboring Second City. Adobo had spent 15 years in the location. Meanwhile, starting on July 10, they'll start weekend brunch service.

Adobo Grill, 215 W. North Ave, (312) 266-7999, temp hours: open 4 p.m. to 10 p.m., Wednesday through Saturday; 3 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. on Sunday.
