Brick: It’s been a while since Famous Dave’s closed this location in town. Lately there has been some work done to the vacant restaurant. The whole inside has been gutted and is currently being rebuilt. Today crews are preparing the outside for a new facade.

OCSN interviewed some of the workers on scene to inquire on future plans for the property. Indeed the building has been sold or leased to new owners. According to plans, a new restaurant is set to open soon and it is likely to be an Italian restaurant. Construction crews didn’t have much information beyond the new owners are giving it an Italian-sounding name.

We will keep an eye on the restaurant and see what will become. All of us here at OCSN we’re hoping for a new barbecue place, but we will see!
