"They signed a lease two weeks ago to build an approximately 5,000-square-foot restaurant seating about 150 diners on the ground floor of Madison25, a retail-residential building currently under construction in the Proctor neighborhood.

“It was a good location, but ultimately, we kept coming back to Proctor,” Chatalas said.
“Proctor immediately felt like home to us. It’s a combination of Madison Park and Kirkland. It’s a great retail area and lots of families, lots of good restaurants. Ultimately, we felt we’d fit in,” he said."
