Ferndale-based vegan eatery GreenSpace Cafe is expanding to Royal Oak. The restaurant is taking over the former Moe’s Southwest Grill space at 32867 Woodward Ave. near 14 Mile Road with plans to turn it into a more casual spot called GreenSpace Grille & Go, according to a release.
The fast-casual outpost is expected to offer a variety of items designed to be quick and portable such as burgers, salads, grain bowls, tacos, and baked goods. The location will also offer raw juices. The space will feature around a dozen window seats and dedicated parking.
Cardiologist and vegan diet advocate Joel Kahn co-founded GreenSpace in 2015 with his wife, Karen, and son, Daniel. Earlier this year, the restaurant got into the mobile restaurant business with the debut of the GreenSpace Jungle Truck. The truck and the new Grille & Go are expected to share some menu items such as jackfruit sliders and mac and “cheese.”
A representative for the restaurant confirms to Eater that GreenSpace signed the lease this week and is in the process of developing plans for the renovation. If all goes well, GreenSpace Grille & Go will debut in the first quarter of 2018.
