MingHin Coming to 1234 S. Michigan

Former Ma & I space where new MingHin coming
In case you missed this one, Eater Chicago had a recent blurb about a new Chinese Restaurant coming to the 1200 block of South Michigan:
An essential Chinese mini-chain plans large new South Loop spotMingHin Cuisine, a longtime former Eater 38 Chinatown favorite that’s expanded to three more Chicagoland locations, appears to be planning a large new South Loop spot for its next venture — which could include Japanese food. Management applied for a liquor license for the first two floors at 1232-34 S. Michigan Avenue and the second floor is interestingly under the name MingHin Japanese. Management has yet to respond to email and phone inquiries and additional information is not yet available, so stay tuned for more intel.

We've never been to MingHin, but it's slightly surprising that they're expanding so close to their Chinatown location.  Maybe they're trying to appeal to people who just won't venture a little further south to Chinatown.

This restaurant location was previously one of our favorites - Ma & I.  They closed a couple years back, but there have been persistent rumors of an Asian restaurant coming back to this location.  If the note above is correct, it appears the rumor is true.
