In quick turn-around time, El Gallo Rojo, which opened just a few months ago downtown at 917 Franklin, has closed. But, a new restaurant is taking its place. Macondo Latin Bistro, previously located at 208 Travis, closed on Sunday, August 3, and revealed on Facebook that it will be reopening somewhere else; that new spot could be at 917 Franklin. According to a tipster for Swamplot, "It looks like Macondo will be opening in that space, although I have no idea if they are keeping the name."
