It's the last week of the month of July, which you might recall is the week we earlier described as the first week of business for the long-stalled Fatburger outpost in Midtown.
As any visitors to the Woodward Ave. storefront can tell you, Fatburger is not open. The highly-unlikely two week buildout for the space after two years of delays and financial investment shifts, eagerly touted by local Fatburger developer Gary Shelton, continues on in fits and starts.
Shelton refused comment in a phone call today, and directed all future inquiries to the Fatburger corporate office in Beverly Hills, CA.
In an interview with Eater Detroit earlier in the month, Shelton was bullish on his opening trajectory.
"It looks good to me," Shelton said. "Should be done in a few weeks, but I'm not a construction guy."
