Welcome to the Plywood Report, a continually updated list of intel on Detroit's and metro Detroit’s coming restaurant attractions.
CASS CORRIDOR — Midtown’s favorite sweet and savory pie slinger, Dangerously Delicious Pies, has shut down its pop-up operations in 3rd Street Bar in order to focus on opening the brand’s new brick-and-mortar shop. That project is slated for the ground floor of the recently renovated Strathmore Apartment Building just a few steps away from Great Lakes Coffee. Co-owner Sam Wood tells Eater the pie shop is expected to open this fall with a similar dine-in and carryout service to the Wyandotte location. [EaterWire]
CASS CORRIDOR — Nearby, Gus’s World Famous Fried Chicken is rapidly taking shape. Since our last visit, the restaurant has gained awnings, tables, and chairs throughout. A banner now teases the forthcoming opening. Gus’s first Detroit location is expected to open later this month. [EaterWire]
NEW CENTER — The soon-to-open second location of chef-driving mini chain Atomic Chicken now features signage. Workers could be seen inside the restaurant today. It’s estimated that Atomic Chicken’s New Center outpost will open by late summer/early fall. [EaterWire]
GREEKTOWN — Downtown’s forthcoming Wahlburgers restaurant is now slated to open this month. The company provided an update via Facebook noting that the restaurant is receiving some final touches on its buildout and is conducting necessary staff training. [Facebook]
