Indianapolis-based Cunningham Restaurant Group has signed a letter of intent to develop a restaurant on the much-coveted – and sorely neglected – site of the original Bauer’s 1870 Tavern at 3608 Brownsboro Road.
Led by Mike Cunningham, CRG has five high-end casual concepts and 10 total restaurants scattered throughout Indiana and Ohio. (Click here to see a list of concepts.)
Cunningham confirmed his company is “taking steps to do something there, but I’d hate to get the ball rolling talking about it when these deals sometimes blow up. They just don’t always work out.”
Paul Grisanti, owner of Grisanti Group, the Louisville-based commercial real estate firm that is brokering the deal, confirmed CRG’s involvement, but gave few details other than those supplied in public documents filed today.
