World-renowned chef Richard Sandoval recently closed Zengo and its companion, La Güera; Zengo had just had an upgrade last fall after its twelfth anniversary (Gretchen Kurtz was not impressed, as she reported in her review of Zengo), and La Güera hadn't worked as La Biblioteca, either. They'll be replaced by Wayward, a restaurant and bar brought to Riverfront by the Way Back crew.

And not a second too soon, according to this reader. Says Rob: 

Glad to hear. Had the worst service at both establishments. Owner needs to reevaluate the fundamentals of how to cohesively run a restaurant.
