Bucharest Grill on Park Avenue, Saturday at 9:30 p.m.

Welcome to a special Cheap Eats Week edition of Eater Scenes, where Eater photographers Michelle and Chris Gerard visit some of the city's affordable dining destinations to capture them at a certain, and very specific, point in the day. Here is a look inside the original Bucharest Grill location on a typical Saturday night.

Bucharest Grill opened less than 10 years ago on Park Avenue in Detroit, but since then it's developed a following strong following among downtown residents, workers, and visitors to the nearby ballpark. Now with a satellite restaurant in Corktown and a Milwaukee Junction outpost on the way, Bucharest is poised for expansion.

Few restaurants can compete with their Romanian-style shawarma stuffed with chicken, pickle spears, and a strong garlic sauce. From lunch until late in the evening customers pour out the door at this quintessential late-night cheap eat. Photographers Chris and Michelle Gerard visited the original restaurant and the Park Bar on a recent Saturday night.
