This is our third straight post about the 1400 block of South Michigan and to be honest this might be the most exciting post yet (in our opinion). The west side of the block has a lot of good looking retail space built, but the question has remained, when will the businesses come?
Some readers recently noticed some construction inside the retail space at Michigan Avenue Tower II (which is the high-rise at the corner of 14th and Michigan). Anyone who has walked by this retail space has probably noticed the unfinished floors and dire scene inside. So it came as a pleasant surprise when we saw work being done inside this retail space. At the time no one knew what was going in, but after some digging we heard through the grapevine that it's going to be a "breakfast spot".
Honestly, when we peak inside it doesn't seem to look like a restaurant. It looks more like a dentist's office or maybe office space? It's early, so we will see.
Yolk and Bongo Room are solid and seem to do good business. Can another breakfast spot flourish?
