What Happened to and What May be in Store for the Former Cibo’s: El Chilito?

As noted in these pages last month, Cibo which had to close its doors in the spring, was supposed to have been bailed out by an investor from New York who was apparently going to open a restaurant called Luciles. That deal crashed and burned at the 11th hour.

Now, news has it that the team from the successful El Chile operation on Manor has purchased the restaurant at 10th and Congress. Doesn’t take too much of a stretch of the imagination to suggest that the theme of the new restaurant will be Mexican. Perhaps another El Chilito?
