Sorry for the religious jokes, but we can't help it (see old post on Pita Heaven).
Anyway, a reader recently asked what the hell is up with Pita Heaven. We walk by frequently and it appeared that there wasn't much movement inside. However, upon a recent stroll past and a peak inside, it appears they have tables and booths inside now (we apologize for the picture put it was the best we could do):
This is a good sign and hopefully means that things are progressing (even if it's at a slower pace than we wish). It looks nice inside, so hopefully this means the falafel will match the quality of the decor.
On another note, we posted about two of the retail spaces at 1400 S. Michigan being built out. It was pretty clear that one would be a restaurant/breakfast spot, but the other one was a mystery. We heard a rumor that it might be an electronics/computer repair store, but a reader sent us this email about a sign on the window:
While at the bust stop today I saw a lit of "activity" (i.e., work being done) at the retail space at 1400 S. Michigan (the building where I live) and there was a sign outside that read "Sanctuary".Unfortunately, I was running late and did not have time to investigate further, but thought you would be interested in the info.
Interesting. Originally we thought this might be a religious institution, but that was probably silly. Could it be a spa? Anyone know about this new place?
