Months after signing a two-year lease for the space formerly occupied by eve the restaurant in Kerrytown, Zingerman’s has submitted a request for an ownership transfer of a liquor license and a dance-entertainment permit.

Grace Singleton, one of the deli’s managing partners, said the events space has been open and operating underneath a management agreement with eve the restaurant to use a liquor license in eve’s name.
However, the request will transfer the liquor license ownership into the Zingerman’s Delicatessen, Inc. name.
Since opening Zingerman’s Events on Fourth early this year, Singleton said the space has been “really successful.”
“We’re having all kinds of events there,” she said. “It’s a really nice space for the area, and is really ideal for 75 or 80 people. It’s a cozy space for everything from birthday parties to 50th anniversaries, small weddings and rehearsal dinners.”
Zingerman’s signed the lease for the events space as part of its expansion project at the Zingerman’s Deli on Detroit Street. The $6.7 million construction project consists of a 10,400-square-foot addition.
Singleton said the project is on track to be completed by summer 2012.
“Right now, we’re building up,” she said. “We have basement walls and we’re moving on the progress. The rain gave us a little bit of trouble, but otherwise, the project seems to be on schedule right now.”
