M Vie will close at the end of month at 1372 W. Grand Ave., ownership revealed via Facebook. They plan on moving to the South Loop, but a location wasn’t revealed. The restaurant, which serves gumbo, slings a variety of specialty cocktails and hosts live music, opened in 2013.
According to the facebook post it sounds like they took a vote to determine where their new spot should be and the Sloop won:
The vote count is in and we are happy to announce that the new home of the BEST Gumbo in town will be the South Loop. Before you ask OF COURSE we will bring those other yummy favorites
Seems like a slightly strange way of determining where to open a business, but guess it's a good thing for us? Not sure if anyone has been to this restaurant, but it seems like they're reviews are relatively solid.
Anyone have any additional information or thoughts on this move?
