Nini's closes after posting racist, anti-gay messages
2020-06-08

Nini's Deli—a fast-casual restaurant that served Cuban-inspired breakfast sandwiches with ropa vieja and empanadas, at 543 N. Noble St.—has permanently closed after crowds gathered over the weekend to protest a series of racist and homophobic social media posts made by its owners, Eater Chicago noted.

Co-owner Juany Riesco had a clothing company called Chicago Native ( which has also shut down ), and collaborated on a pair of sneakers with Nike ( which cut ties with him ).

Last week, Riesco was asked what he thought of the Black Lives Matter ( BLM ) movement. The Riesco family then made statements online and outside the restaurant that equated BLM to a terrorist group, with Juany Riesco citing his religious beliefs and that "does not stand behind any movement that hates all police officers." The brothers also made homophobic and anti-Muslim remarks.
