Welcome to the winter Plywood Report, a roundup of all the latest intel on Detroit's and metro Detroit’s coming restaurant attractions.

EASTERN MARKET — Forthcoming Gratiot Avenue restaurant, Gather, has nearly reached the finish line. The 1,100-square-foot eatery is expected to launch in late March with range of shared plates featuring wood-fire grilled meats and vegetables. The restaurant is reportedly awaiting inspections on the space. [Crain’s]

AVENUE OF FASHION — The northernmost expansion of Detroit-based shawarma slinger Bucharest Grill is expected to arrive sometime in the next two months on The Avenue of Fashion, owner Bogdan Tarasov tells Eater. [EaterWire]

DOWNTOWN — The downtown Detroit location of Avalon Cafe and Bakery is on track for a spring launch. The restaurant was announced more than a year ago to fill a space near Campus Martius at 1049 Woodward Ave. Co-founder Jackie Victor says the restaurant will be similar to the first Avalon Cafe in Ann Arbor but with a larger “emphasis on grab-and-go.” [Freep]

DOWNTOWN — A meaty undertaking slated to land downtown this spring, Prime + Proper recently named its executive butcher, Walter M. Apfelbaum, formerly of NYY Steakhouse at the Seminole Casino in Florida. [Metro Times]
