The restaurant shuttered indefinitely in February.

The saga of Midtown's Fatburger continues. The lone Detroit franchise has struggled since opening in 2013 and shuttered indefinitely in February, with signs on the door indicating the franchisee owed a large sum of money. Now, an Eater tipster sends word that the lights are back on and a new owner is preparing to reopen the ill-fated eatery. Listed phone numbers for the restaurant are disconnected. Stay tuned for a reopening date.

Update, 4/7, 7:56 a.m.: A representative for Fatburger confirms the restaurant will reopen in late April.
