Has anything taken over the space vacated by Haru at 3rd & Chestnut?

I think it closed over 12 months ago and i haven't been in the area to see if the space has been reincarnated.....

  1. Pretty sure it's still empty.

    1. As of yesterday (April 20, 2013) it was empty. I didn't check to see if there were any notes indicating who the next tenant would be, but many restaurants in Old City have remained vacant for years, so it could be a while before they find a new tenant.

        Weren't the Haru people talking about putting a ramen shop in there?

          Haru's people are Benihana FYI. Haru is a subsidiary.

            O right. I'm thinking of Zento on the 100 block.

      2. I live about a block away, and as far as I know there hasn't been any word about what will go in there next.

        I imagine the rent is very high, so it might have to be another chain-type place that moves in.
