It appears that Sergio's Bar & Grill has fallen through. The company had applied for a liquor license last year and planned to go into the La Bamba/Express Burrito & old Jimmy John's locations on South Illinois, across the street from El Greco's. There's been no work done on either the exterior or interior of the two locations and the liquor license the company received last year has lapsed. So no Sergio's and no sign anything is going in there in the immediate future.
Across the street, El Greco's is negotiating with the city to turn the empty plot of ground where the American Tap used to stand into an outdoor dining area. Apparently the sticking point is the city's desire to lease the property to El Greco's, while the restaurant wishes to buy it outright.
