I think this has been on the board before, but I heard this from the owner of Foran's while eating at Eph's today on Woodward. The owner of Eph's has sold out, and has sold out for a couple months now. The new owners _ who are the owners of Forans _ will phase out the menu at Eph's, knock a hole through the wall to connect to Foran's, either modify or get a new liquor license, and convert the place to upscale/high-end diner connected to the bar and do away with the menu and sandwiches. They will have a "make-it-yourself" style menu where you basically check off what you want _ bread, meat, condiment _ and the make you the sandwich
The old owner of eph's are to reopen in the Bohemian National Home in some format.
I knew something was up as the jars of pickels had disappeared over the past few months and my sandwich today _ a turkey club _ appeared to be made with classic lunchmeat and ordinary bread. Very pedestrian.
