What's Going on at TAQO Detroit? [Updated]

Is the restaurant permanently shuttered or closed for renovations?

The chalkboard sign seems to imply the restaurant is only temporarily closed and staff at R.U.B. say the owners are preparing to renovate.

TAQO Detroit appears to be undergoing some sort of change. A tipster sends word that staff were notified Monday by text that TAQO was closing. A chalkboard sign at the restaurant also confirmed the closure, although the message's wording implies that it's a temporary hiatus.

Unable to reach TAQO by phone, Eater contacted its sister restaurant R.U.B. BBQ Pub. Management at R.U.B. were also not immediately available for comment, but a staff member stated that the restaurant (which is less than two years old) was about to undergo renovations. Stay tuned for more details.

Update, 1/13, 1:10 p.m.: TAQO Detroit is closed for renovations until Tigers' spring training, according to a social media post.

We're taking this time off to create a better space. We look forward to having you back at the end of February!
