"GIULIANO" which was formerly Roberto Passon- Has anyone tried it yet?

I loved Roberto Passon and would like to know how the replacement chef is doing. Can anyone report on the quality of a meal? Thanks, in advance.

    It seems that Giuliano has followed the same fate as Roberto Passon. Both restaurants have evidently closed. Does anyone know what happened? More specifically, are either places operating under a new name? I was hoping to try Giuliano this week, only to learn that the restaurant has closed!

      It has now turned into a second location of Lime Jungle. It seems that as it was already a relatively popular spot further north, that this concept is working, as it has been pretty busy whenever I have walked by. However, am not sure of whether the folks behind either Roberto Passon or Giuliano have moved on elsewhere. There has been a lot of turnover in that area in the past year or so!

        Thanks. Looks like a decent enough menu. Maybe I'll try it one day when I have a hankering for Tex-Mex. But it definitely won't satisfy my current craving for something more Italian / continental European ...!
