West Village eatery Detroit Vegan Soul will open the doors at its second location in Grandmont Rosedale next month. Owners Kirsten Ussery and chef Erika Boyd tell the Detroit News that the restaurant is poised for a July 22 launch at 19614 Grand River Avenue on Detroit’s northwest side.
Ussery and Boyd purchased the former Blue Moon Ice Cream shop building near Pages Bookshop a little over a year ago and have been slowly working on renovations. At roughly 1,200-square-feet the second Detroit Vegan Soul outpost will feature roughly the same sized footprint as the original with seats for 36 patrons. The new location also has a dedicated parking lot and a larger kitchen.
The menu is also expected to be mostly identical to its predecessor with items like “catfish” tofu and seitan pepper steak. Ussery told Eater in January that the dessert offerings would be “slightly different” at each restaurant. At the time Ussery also hinted at another possible expansion opportunity in the works. Stay tuned for more updates.
