Has Bar Bao opened?

Does anyone know if Bar Bao (the new Rain) has opened yet and if so, thumbs up or down. Rain was a great neighborhood restaurant and it will be missed.

      Tried again just now. Still getting the recorded message that Rain has closed, the new concept in September, yadda yadda. Will keep trying.

          Just called and the phone is now answering as "Welcome to Bar Bao" and they intend to open the week on October 20th. Hope the anticipation was worth it.

    2. I walked by last Sunday (oct 19) and it was still not open, but there were people inside working on getting the place ready.
