Seoul Taco will soon become the sole tenant in the space it currently shares with Seoul Q. Though Seoul Taco moved to a larger spot in The Loop last year, the shared kitchen and space with the Korean barbecue and hot pot restaurant became chaotic.

Seoul Q will be bowing out of the space, taking a temporary hiatus—and be looking for a new—starting Jan. 16, with renovations to be complete in early February. 6665 Delmar Blvd., The Loop, 314.863.1148
