After months of waiting, onetime Third Street Bar pop-up Dangerously Delicious Pies has finally returned to Detroit — and this time in its very own space. Co-owner Sam Wood and his wife were there for the shop’s debut on March 3 in the Strathmore Apartment Building just across from Great Lakes Coffee on Alexandrine Street.
The restaurant features a simple set-up with a walk-up counter, a pie display case, fridges, and a small oven for heating up savory slices. All the from pies are prepared daily at the company’s prep bakery in River Rouge for distribution to the Midtown and the Wyandotte locations.
Like its predecessors, DDP’s roughly 900-square-foot Detroit outpost is set up for carryout but also has plenty of room for dine-in customers. Designed RL Concetti of Virtuoso Design Build, the shop seats around 25 patrons at a mixture of wood two-tops and bar seating. Red and magenta chairs, couches, and subway tile add pops of color to the mainly black, white, and silver color palette. The owners plan to regularly update the wall hangings to showcase local artists.
Photographers Michelle and Chris Gerard got a first-look inside the restaurant ahead of its debut on Friday evening. Take a peek inside the shop in the gallery below.
Dangerously Delicious Pies Midtown is located at 70 W. Alexandrine St.; the shop will open throughout the week from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. (hours may change after March 12); 313-818-3149. Website.
