Mid-Rising from the Ashes

elfenixvintage150.jpgFirebird Restaurant Group, LLC - parent company of El Fenix - has purchased a seven story office building in Uptown as a prelude to major expansion. DBJ reports that Firebird CEO Mike Karns said, "This is the initial stage of a larger project that will revamp the 94-year-old restaurant chain," and he intimated that it will "include a new concept that is still being formalized." The company announced in December plans to add a second Mesa Maya location in the former Luna Tortilla site. [DBJ]
