SHARE Hyde Park’s Yusho restaurant might open by late summer

Chef Matthias Merges’ Yusho restaurant is expected to open late this summer in Hyde Park after neighbors dropped a lawsuit to uphold a liquor ban on 53rd Street.

“We were waiting for the final ruling before beginning construction,” Calmetta Coleman, a spokeswoman for the University of Chicago, told DNAInfo.com.

The university recruited the restaurant to fill the former Third World Cafe storefront at 1301 E. 53rd St.

Yusho is planned as a Japanese street-food-style restaurant. The Facebook page for Merges’ other Hyde Park restaurant, A10, said, “We can’t wait! Midday steam buns are just a few months away, thank goodness!”
