Aaron Belen, owner of AFB Hospitality, is hoping to bring something new to Birmingham with the opening of The Morrie, which has plans to be up and running by early next year. “There just isn’t a place right now out here for people that want a neighborhood restaurant with a very approachable price point,” he said. The Birmingham restaurant, much like the Royal Oak one of the same name – located at 511 S. Main St. – will be family-friendly and have lots of entertainment, includ
It was short, but for those who had the opportunity to dine there, it was sweet. For those looking to visit Chapman House, 311 Walnut Boulevard in Rochester, for brunch or dinner this summer, they’ll have to look elsewhere. In May, the Rochester restaurant announced on their Facebook page they would be undergoing “improvements and changes” and “putting our regular dinner and brunch services on hold, at least through the end of summer.” For now, they will be focusing only on p
Early next year Jim Brady’s Detroit will return to their roots with the opening of a Detroit location, where the original restaurant opened in 1954 and was in business for over 30 years. “For me, its kind of like a poetic, completing the circle kind of thing, bringing my grandfather’s concept back to the city,” said Tom Brady, the third-generation owner. The future restaurant – which Brady said is 8,100-square-feet and has a basement of equal size – will be located in a vacan

Tersion Yatooma really loves sandwiches, which played a role in why he and co-owner Patrick Maizy decided to open Spread Deli & Coffee House in Detroit. Located at 4215 Cass Avenue in Detroit, the duo hope to have the storefront open by the beginning of July. Spread Deli & Coffee House will serve a variety of sandwiches – Yatooma said the menu will probably have four to six, along with the ability to build your own – and offer simple coffee drinks.

On May 18, customers of Parks & Rec Diner, 1942 W. Grand River Avenue, in downtown Detroit, found out that Executive Chef Allie Lyttle would no longer be at the restaurant via a statement on their Facebook page. “The Diner had been doing very well, in terms of covers and total sales and media coverage. So I was completely taken aback,” said Lyttle, who had been there for almost three years. She found out right before leaving for her honeymoon she had lost her job – via text m
This summer, Mr. B’s Gastropub, 215 S. Main Street in Royal Oak, will debut three new projects: a speakeasy, vintage arcade, and exterior mural. The first, an underground and hidden speakeasy named Johnny’s, is targeted to open in June, and like all good speakeasies will have a not-so-typical entrance. In the current design, guests will enter the 1,500-square-foot speakeasy through a back staircase accessible from an exterior kitchen door, with an entrance inside disguised as
Lost River, a new tiki bar at 15421 Mack Avenue, Detroit, had their public opening in early June. Matt Mergener, the bar’s co-owner along with Karen Green, said both days went really well, with people dying to check out the tropical atmosphere – which includes a floral mural by local artist Ouizi – and interesting cocktails. “Tiki is a little bit more rum-based and there’s a lot of cool things you can do with it,” Mergener said. Needless to say, their full drink menu has a lo
