El Paisano opened a new location on Delmar east of the Loop.

February saw much activity in the Delmar Loop, with the opening of Chubbies and Mission Taco Joint as well as the news that a coffee shop called BluePrint Coffee might be joining those two restaurants on the same block. (To say nothing of the Washington Univeristy-related demolition currently taking place in and around the Loop.)

The month also saw new locations for several existing restaurants, including the Block, El Paisano Mexican Bar & Grill and Llywelyn's Pub.

The complete list of openings and closings follows the jump. As always, let us know any openings or closings that we missed.
