Rebuild Begins

One year after the fire that claimed the corner of 11th and Howard, the rebuilding effort is finally underway. Ann Mellen is planning to reopen M’s, with or without gaining legal access to the name, with many of the same dishes and architectural concepts as before. Market House will also return to the corner, and owner Nick Bartholomew hopes to open in April.
