Westside BBQ Closes
January 2020 Marketplace closings
From the January, 2020 issue
Westside BBQ on E. Madison off of S. Main closed its doors in early December. Though the restaurant was embroiled in an ownership lawsuit (Marketplace Changes, December 2017), online posts speculate that the proximate cause was the U-M's purchase of the Fingerle Lumber property in 2018. Owner Matteo Melosi was not available for comment, but the university has demolished many of the lumber yard's buildings, and may have plans for this one as well.
