The word came out, inconveniently for getting the word out, late Friday— structural problems in the building SushiSamba Rio occupies would force the closing of the restaurant until January 28:
We are evaluating a structural fracture at the truss and are taking the protective measures to repair it. The management regrets any inconvenience, but we are following these procedures for the safety and wellbeing of our guests and staff.
Besides regular reservations, this forced the cancellation of the first two omakase dinners in the series we wrote about here. The expectation is that the third and fourth dinners in early February will take place as scheduled but the first two will be rescheduled afterwards. Call 312-943-6900 for more details.
