Passers-by over the weekend may have seen some activity off Halsted and Randolph, as La Josie held a friends and family service. The West Loop’s multi-level Mexican restaurant, complete with a roof deck, should open to the general public either on Wednesday or Friday for Cinco de Mayo at 740 W. Randolph St. The family-owned spot is a spin off of El Solazo, the Mexican restaurant near Midway Airport.

Jose Barajas is part of the ownership and said La Josie is a reference to his aunt. The menu will represent a variety of Mexican regions. He also hopes to give Randolph Street a place with margaritas and other Mexican food and drink so patrons can blow off steam. The roof area overlooks Halsted and has a dedicated bar. That stretch of Randolph, east of Halsted, has been sleepy until recently. At the end of March, The Lunatic, The Lover & The Poet opened two doors west of La Josie, with Ronero also recently opening in between.

Stay tuned for more on La Josie later this week.
