Popular Pleasant Ridge diner Mae's is temporarily shuttered this week following the announcement that longtime owner Jessica Lundgren sold the brunch spot to Valter and Elda Xhomaqi, who own Birmingham's The Whistle Stop and Ferndale's Double EE Restaurant. Fans voiced concern that Mae's menu might not transfer. However, The Detroit News reports that Mae's dishes will mostly stay the same and that the menu will include expanded options like cinnamon roll French toast and pie. Workers could be seen inside the restaurant today completing renovations. Elda Xhomaqi tells the paper that she expects the restaurant to reopen by the end of the week.
