MLG, MOCHA MISK
‘I CLOSE DOWNTOWN LOCATIONS
The ongoing revival of downtown Jacksonville was dealt a couple of blows this week.
Dessert shop Mocha Misk’i permanently shut down its location along Laura St., with a Facebook post indicating that they’ve opted to become an online-only business.
And MLG, the upscale restaurant concept from investor Marcus Lemonis, also permanently closed its location within the historic Seminole Club building downtown.
Lemonis is apparently done with downtown Jax altogether, as the building itself has also been listed for sale. Sweet Pete’s is expected to remain in the building for the time being.
