Vacant since September, the former Olga's Kitchen space in downtown Detroit is poised to welcome a new tenant. Bedrock Real Estate, which leases the building, is expected to reveal the new restaurant headed for the 4,000-square-foot venue tomorrow morning. In the release, Bedrock describes the new tenant as "the first-of-its kind to open in the Detroit and Michigan."
The Dan Gilbert-owned firm has a history of luring major chains into the downtown area including Freshii and Wahlburgers. Shake Shack was even rumored to be in talks with the real estate company in 2013. Olga's Kitchen filed for bankruptcy last June and later blamed its Chapter 11 filing on the prolonged and expensive buildout of its Compuware Building restaurant. Stay tuned for updates.
