MADISON, Wis. – The building at 131 W. Wilson Street has received permission to reopen, the City of Madison announced Wednesday.

The building, which houses Paisan’s Restaurant, was closed last month due to structural concerns.

City officials said that while all above-ground spaces are good-to-go, work is continuing on the building’s parking garage.

With the building given the all-clear, Paisan’s also has the chance to re-open.

The restaurant, a Madison staple for over 70 years, had to shut its doors along with the building last month.
