Ken Mistler set to purchase 10th building downtown -- former South Beach location
Ken Mislter, who currently owns 9 buildings in Downtown Batavia by his count, has reached a purchase agreement for the former South Beach Restaurant location.
The deal will close May 1. Mistler said the building will be immediately available to a lessee looking to open a restaurant. It's turnkey ready, Mislter said.
"The guy (Alex Giuliani) left the salt and the pepper," Mistler said, explaining how the restaurant is ready to open now.
Alex and Barbara left the location in pristine condition, other sources tell me.
The asking price for the building was $425,000. Mistler said he paid something less than that, but won't disclose the price until after it becomes public record. Separately, he also bought all the equipment.
Alex and Barbara Giuliani closed the restaurant unexpectedly three months ago, and the abrupt closure was controversial.
