If they hit the official end of the lease it was probably the only time they could have without creating legal issues. A new tenant finish will probably have to wait on a new tenant being identified. They won't necessarily even want to tear anything out because it's not uncommon for some tenants in this market to take an existing layout and just rebrand, new tables and the like. A kitchen space could be majority usable.
It's also not going to be a situation where the former tenant has two weeks to get stuff out. I bet many restaurant leases let the former user be able to sell equipment to the new user to sweeten the deal, or this could be done instead of paying back rent for a failed restaurant. Why tear out a walk in or remove a stove if it can be reused and everyone benefits. Like you save the cost of hiring someone to unhook a gas line and just hook something else up.
I woiuldn't expect to see movement until they have a plan identified for the space.
