Sheesh restaurant space in downtown Ann Arbor is put up for lease following damaging fire
The space that formerly housed the Sheesh Mediterranean restaurant at 207 N. Main St. in downtown Ann Arbor is available for lease, just two months after a stubborn grease fire significantly damaged the building.
The 2,684-square-foot space is listed with Foxway Realty for an annual $24 per square foot.
“All the equipment is in place and included in the lease price,” according to the listing. “Walk-in freezer and all the kitchen supplies you could ever need. This space is under renovation, so please pardon the construction.”

A broker with Foxway Realty declined to provide any further details about the property, and the restaurant owners, Mike Ibrahim and Abe Tarhini, have not been available for comment.
But the real estate listing casts doubt on whether Sheesh will reopen in this location following the fire.
The fire on Aug. 22 displaced about 25 residents of apartments and a condominium unit in the building and closed Sheesh restaurant. The neighboring Edible Arrangements was also forced to close for a short time.
A total of 51 firefighters from four departments battled the blaze and it took hours to extinguish.
Edible Arrangements signed a lease to relocate to Washtenaw Avenue shortly after the fire.
