Yusho to open in summer

By Harini Jaganathan

After legal issues delayed its opening by eight months, Japanese restaurant Yusho is slated to open this summer.

The Hyde Park version of Matthias Merges’ Logan Square restaurant was originally scheduled to open in February on East 53rd Street and South Kimbark Avenue. However, development was postponed due to a lawsuit filed by Hyde Park residents, which challenged the University’s petition that aimed to overturn an alcohol ban in the precinct in which Yusho is situated. The restaurant hoped to apply for a liquor license.

According to the Hyde Park Herald, the lawsuit was dismissed on December 17.
