South Loop Gino's East grand opening next week
07/05/2012 2:04 PM
The former Printers Row Edwardo’s, at 521 S. Dearborn St., has reopened as a new restaurant concept from Gino’s East: A sports bar.
Gino’s is holding a grand opening next Wednesday, July 11, offering a free slice of pizza to guests from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m.
The restaurant doesn’t feature the trademark graffiti that’s at other Gino’s locations, but being a sports bar, it features plenty of TVs.
One of the restaurant’s new policies is drawing controversy online, however. The new restaurant won’t allow kids under the age of 18 into the restaurant after 7:30 p.m. South Loop blog Sloopin addressed the issue, sharing a letter from a parent upset that she hadn’t been allowed to take her child into the restaurant.
A Gino’s East spokeswoman did not return a call requesting comment.
