The owner of a restaurant in northern Minnesota has won a bid to open its doors after a massive fire last year that devastated its entire property.
In the bid submitted Friday to the state’s Board of Building and Safety, Nanda Srinivasan has agreed to buy the space at 727 W. 10th Street for $1.9 million.
The company that owns the restaurant has leased it to another company, the Minnesota State Restaurant Association, for five years and will use the space to operate its restaurants.
Nanda Sreenivasan is the latest in a long line of owners of Minnesota restaurants to be caught up in the massive fire in January that destroyed much of the property and caused more than $1 billion in damages.
The state is still investigating what caused the blaze.
