Southwest Detroit pop-up Flowers of Vietnam is slated to close soon for renovations and expansion but that’s not the only project chef George Azar has on the docket. The restaurant is also preparing to launch a new outpost inside Ford Field, according to the Detroit Free Press.

Last month it was announced that the home of the Detroit Lions would be receiving some big facility upgrades including updates to the stadium’s bars, restaurants, and clubs. The new Flowers of Vietnam satellite restaurant will be added as part of that $100 million renovation. Filling a space next to Bigalora, the outlet will offer a limited menu with Korean-fried wings, banh mi, and papaya salad.

Azar will be closing up shop on March 19 and taking time during renovations to work with the internationally lauded restaurant Noma throughout the duration of its pop-up in Tulum, Mexico. Flowers of Vietnam is expected to reopen this summer.
