A real estate brokerage in Chicago is actively marketing the property that formerly housed Grazie Ristorante in Des Plaines, a city official said Thursday.

The long-established restaurant at 1050 E. Oakton St. was foreclosed on last month, but Mike Bartholomew, Des Plaines director of community and economic development, said the bank has employed Studley Incorporated, a real estate brokerage in Chicago.

Bartholomew said that is a good sign.

"It's encouraging that they are being so aggressive and actively reaching back out to the community," he said. "It's a prime piece of property and it's a relatively large building.

"I don't think they'll have any problem marketing and reopening it," Bartholomew added. It's a perfect location."

Grazie's owner Nick Mitchell could not be reached for comment.
