Fast-expanding, metro Detroit chain 2941 Street Food is getting ready to unveil a new location next month and adding some fresh offerings to its lineup of Mediterranean and Middle Eastern-inspired dishes. Co-founder and chef Jacques Van Staden tells Eater the company will debut its third location on February 15 in Birmingham, with restaurants to follow in Auburn Hills (April/May) and Bloomfield Hills (July).
In addition to the new outposts, Van Staden says the company is introducing booze into the mix. The recently minted Midtown restaurant just received its liquor license and will begin offering cocktails in the next two weeks. Both the Auburn Hills and Bloomfield Hills restaurants will also be blessed with booze, while the Birmingham location is remaining dry for the time being.
Meanwhile, Van Staden says that a long delayed project in the David Whitney Building, Grand Cirque Brasserie, has been placed on hold for the time being. Eater received a tip late last week that the French-influenced restaurant’s logo had been removed from the windows and replaced with paper. The restaurant’s Facebook page has also been taken down.
2941 Street Food isn’t just targeting metro Detroit. The company has big plans to expand to Las Vegas in 2018.
