New sandwich slinger lands in Cass Corridor
Spread Deli & Coffee House is moving into a 1,280-square-foot storefront at 4215 Cass Ave., Metro Times reports. Owners Tersion Yatooma and Patrick Maizy plan to offer 10 different sandwiches made with Avalon breads and meats, produce, and cheeses sourced from Eastern Market. The shop will also feature simple coffee drinks made with Cadillac Coffee and Illy espresso beans plus Detroit Cookie Company cookies, and baklava. For every 10 sandwiches sold, the partners hope to serve one free sandwiches to those in need. The restaurant is expected to open in July.
Detroit-style square slinger Buddy’s Pizza and Griffin Claw Brewing Company are once again collaborating on a new beer. The new brew is dubbed the Bocce IPA after the pizza company’s favorite sport is mad with four types of hops. It’s described as having a “malty backbone that counterbalances a hoppy first sip.” The beer is available starting this month at nine Buddy’s locations in metro Detroit.
