A new fast-casual outfit is getting ready to open its doors on Woodward Avenue. Mediterranean and Middle Eastern-inspired 2941 Street Food is slated to debut its first restaurant in Detroit proper sometime this week, co-founder and chef Jacques Van Staden tells Eater.
The Midtown outpost located on the ground floor of the new Woodward Willis Building was first confirmed more than a year ago. Since then, the company has launched its first restaurant in Rochester Hills and is expected to open locations in Birmingham, Auburn Hills, and Bloomfield between now and Spring 2017. Moreover Van Staden has struck a partnership with Joe Vicari Group and together they’ve developed some ambitious plans to open 25 locations in Michigan and possibly Las Vegas and the greater West Coast.
As with many fast-casual restaurants, diners at 2941 Street Food can build-there-own meals by choosing from bowls, pocket sandwiches served in Iraqi-style samoon bread, and platter dishes. Customers can then choose from proteins such as pepper pork, paprika steak, and five grain falafel as well as signature sauces, pickled vegetables, and salad.
Photographers Michelle and Chris Gerard got a sneak peek of the 2,300-square-foot restaurant ahead of the debut. Scope out the interior in the gallery below and stay tuned for updates official opening date.
