IHOP on East 10th Street closed recently, but it won't be sitting empty for long.

According to the Sioux Falls Business Journal, the owners of the IHOP that closed are going to open a new restaurant in the same location and specialize in home cooking.

Not many details are available about the new restaurant, including its name, but it should be open in the spring.  It will not be a chain restaurant.

I'm excited for a new, non-chain restaurant.  Maybe one of these days we can nominate it to be on "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives" on Food Network.  Check out this episode from the Wienery in Minneapolis, MN.
