Welcome to the Plywood Report, a roundup of all the latest intel on Detroit's and metro Detroit’s coming restaurant attractions.
HAMTRAMCK — After more than a year of renovations and two and a half months without a Hamtramck storefront, chocolate maker Bon Bon Bon is ready to unveil its expansive new headquarters at 11360 Joseph Campau Ave. The new chocolate factory and retail shop will open to the public with a party from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. today. To celebrate the opening and the company’s third anniversary, the shop is serving up 333 special edition pink and white birthday cake bons. [EaterWire]
CASS CORRIDOR — At long last, there is photo evidence that Detroit Shipping Company is moving forward with construction. The oft-delayed shipping container food hall slated to open on Peterboro Street confirmed its official lineup of restaurant vendors last month (one more cafe and ice cream shop is still in the works). Below, gaze upon the construction site — surrounded by fences — in all its glory. Partner James Therkalsen tells Eater the containers are expected to start stacking up in mid-August. The full food and entertainment venue is expected to debut this fall. [EaterWire]
HAMTRAMCK — A new Yemeni restaurant headed for the Clock Fine Food building in Hamtramck finally has a name. A banner at the property now announces that Zaytoon Restaurant is headed to the space. The building along with its iconic signage are still in the process of being renovated. [EaterWire]
