Wedge restaurant in the works

The owners of the Wedge building confirm that the iconic River Arts District space will house a restaurant next year. The group of investors, who purchased the building in June, plan to convert the studio formerly occupied by artist Ben Betsalel on the loading-dock side of the building into a small eatery (about 1,700 square feet).

Eddie Dewey, property advisor and part-owner, said he hopes the restaurant will feature food and beer pairings and art shows. While there is no lease on the space yet, Dewey plans to have a tenant before Christmas. “I think there needs to be entertainment, and I throw restaurants in that entertainment,” he says. “The goal is to attract folks who want to buy studio art and help support that. Like everything, there's a yin and yang to it.”
