I just found out this week that Briejo on Harrison Street recently closed. While they always did seem to have a light crowd during the times that we did go there, I'm still sorry to see Oak Park lose another restaurant. I'll be curious to see what go in their place. If anyone knows, be sure to post an update.

TVs are never a good addition to a restaurant. If I want to feel like I'm at a sports bar, I'll go to a sports bar.

 

Korean bbq would be sweet!

I was disappointed to hear that the new restaurant will have much more TVs as part of their re-vamped decor (cuz that is really something that is missing in our area)...sigh...I actually liked Briejo's decor, I was just disappointed with their food...the descriptions on the menu sounded yummy, but what you got was usually greasy and salty.  Still holding out for a GOOD chinese restaurant or korean bbq restaurant somewhere in this town!

That's good news. I think a more affordable concept will serve them well.

 

Thanks for the update, Marty.

Thanks for the update, Marty. Glad to see they will be returning, even if it is in a different form.

It looks like Briejo is only closing temporarily. They hope to reopen in mid-September with a more casual, affordable concept. More info from the Wednesday Journal: http://www.oakpark.com/News/Articles/08-03-2011/Oak_Park_Arts_Distr...

I'm sorry to hear that too.  I was looking forward to the outdoor patio they had plans for.
