    Expect a new look inside Gioco when it reopens.

    South Loop Italian restaurant Gioco is back from the brink.

    The restaurant, which is co-owned by Jerry Kleiner, closed suddenly a few weeks ago because it was behind state taxes and employee withholding payments, according to Crain's.

    According to a release, the restaurant has been renovated to include a new antipasto bar, new furnishings and a new menu created by Executive Chef Danny Sweis.

    The restaurant will be open for dinner immediately and weekday lunch service will resume in a couple of weeks.

    Sunday brunch service is not expected until the fall.
