Late last week we posted about some potential activity at 1234 S. Michigan (former home of Ma & I). The rumor was that an Asian restaurant might be moving in.
In case you missed it a reader did some additional digging and apparently found out the following:
For those not familiar, MingHin Cuisine is a pretty popular Chinatown spot and actually was awarded a Michelin Bib Gourmand ranking this past year.
The restaurant seems to be expanding and has 4 locations (Chinatown, Loop, Naperville and Rolling Meadows).
We'll be curious to see how this plays out and whether it's the same "brand" or a variation. While we wouldn't be shocked if it's another MingHin, it's pretty close to Chinatown so seems a little excessive.
As we mentioned before Ma & I seemed to have solid business around the neighborhood, so we would imagine this restaurant would also do well at this location.
What still isn't clear is what is in store for the rest of the building. Ma & I only took a small portion of the building.
