New late night dining spot to take over old Azia space on Eat Street
The old Azia spot is to be renovated into a new Asian eatery
It's looking as though a new restaurant could open up in the old Azia space at the corner of 26th Street and Nicollet Avenue. A new report from the Southwest Journal announces that plans are well underway for Eat Street Buddha Kitchen & Lounge, a new late-night dining spot set to feature an array of Asian fusion and sea food-focused dishes.
In a statement of intent, Whittier Alliance Executive Director Marian Biehn said, "We are Eat Street, not Drink Street. We're not an entertainment center. While we like all those things, what matters is how this works in the neighborhood."
