Allen Park will gain a new gastro pub this spring. According to a release, the 44-seat Griff's Pub is set to open in the former Big Apple Bagels space on Southfield Road. Owner Christopher Griffin has recruited chef Steven Kempner to design the menu, which will feature "modern American fare" such as house-made and locally sourced sausage. Kempner is perhaps better known in the Detroit pop-up scene as "The Fargin Chef." His pop-up menus frequently appear at St. CeCe's, MotorCity Wine, Checker Bar, Yemans Street, Detroit Institute of Bagels, and more. Griff's Pub is expected to open on April 1.
