A French restaurant in Midtown Memphis will expand its footprint to Downtown.

Tart Cafe, located at 820 Cooper St. plans to open a second restaurant, called Tart Express, inside One Commerce Square.

A building permit filed July 25 for 40 S. Main St. had a $83,500 value for tenant infill. LRK Inc. was listed as the architect, CAAS as the owner, Tart as the tenant and Grinder, Taber & Grinder Inc. as the contractor.

The new location is listed as “coming soon” on the Tart website.

“We are underway with construction and will be working through to complete in September,” Grinder said. “It will be a very nice amenity and addition to the building to have available to the tenants and surrounding area.”
