Detroit area: so why is Zazio's closing?

I, for one, think that the place just isn't bringing the kind of cash that the parent company needs to justify the expense of the place. Let's face it: there really isn't any more highly exposed piece of property in Buhminghahm, and I have to believe that the rent on the place is just stratospheric. As well, there really isn't any "defined" parking for the place, is there, besides the nearby structure?

I know the price structure is high end, but that's usually not a big deal in that area (Cafe Via, anyone?), so I can't help but think that it's not just a "priced themselves out of the market" issue.

For a place that's been pretty highly touted, closing in under two years seems oddly premature. Anybody else have more info?
