As many of you know Premier Health Partners recently bought the old Citizen’s Federal Building to make it their headquarters for their 900+ employees. Which would have been a great addition to the business that Haitham Iman, owner of Carmen’s Deli, had been building for several years. But instead Premier decided to terminate the lease for the Deli – read all about it here on Esrati’s blog.
But just yesterday Haitham signed a new lease across the street at Kettering Tower. His permanent space will be in the Northeast corner of the building at the corner of St. Clair and 2nd Streets. He’ll be starting from scratch to build out the window lined space, but in the meantime, the building owners will allow him to work out of the recently vacated Mr. Hyman’s space, at the base of the elevator tower.
It looks like as of next Wed, July 18th we’ll be able to stop by for a meal and some of the warm hospitality that made Carmen’s Deli such a great place to frequent. It will be a limited menu until he gets his new space set up, but you can count on being greeted with that same old big smile! So be sure and stick a note on your calendar to have lunch there next week and welcome Haitham back!
