THE Chicago Rib Shack is re-opening after nearly 10 years, at the old Mocoto Brazilian restaurant site close to the original site which opened in Knightsbridge 25 years ago.
Customers are said to have been campaigning to ‘Bring the Shack Back’. When the American BBQ restaurant was open it served Applewood Smoked Baby Back Ribs and Onion Loaf to locals and celebrities alike, with Princess Diana and Princes William and Harry passing through its doors.
The 2008 incarnation will serve the classic Rib Shack dishes alongside new offerings. Here’s hoping the Chicago Rib Shack lasts longer than the previous tenants Mocoto who, after spending £5m on a two year long refurbishment, closed the restaurant after just over six months of trading.
