The day is finally here. Bucharest Grill owner Bogdan Tarasov confirms to Eater that his third restaurant will open at 10 a.m. today for dine-in and carry-out. Bucharest's Piquette Street restaurant offers free parking and is located just off Woodward Avenue near Z's Villa.

It’s been quite the wait for the Milwaukee Junction outpost. Rumors cycled in 2013 that Tarasov had acquired the former Dave’s Drive-in site with its classic clock sign, but renovations didn’t begin until a year later. It took even longer for the company to confirm its expansion. This won’t be the final location for Bucharest. The mini-chain has an expansion plan and is expected to open a spot on The Avenue of Fashion next year. Check out the restaurant's transformation in the photos below.
