Coco Pazzo to reopen: What’s new?

Coco Pazzo Cafe (212 East Ohio) has announced that it will reopen today, Wednesday, April 14, 2021. The outdoor street level cafe also will be open for al fresco dining, weather permitting.  (Note: The outdoor patio at Coco Pazzo, 300 West Hubbard, is open as well, in addition to inside seating.)
