New and happier hours
Starting this week, Kate Williams’ hit restaurant Lady of the House will begin opening on Tuesday nights. The Corktown hotspot is commemorating the expanded hours by adding a new happy hour from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday in the bar only. Customers can grab daiquiris gin martinis, old fashioneds, a Dew and Brew (a boilermaker with Tullamore Dew and a Highlife), and select red and white wine for $6.
Juice bar expansion
Luxury gym brand Equinox is expanding to Bloomfield with its first Michigan location opening by the end of the year and yoga pant wearing exercise fanatics can count on a juice bar being part of the package. Metro Detroit-based juice bar chain Beyond Juicery + Eatery has confirmed that it will be opening a location inside Equinox this fall or winter.
Cass Corridor deli readies for opening
Forthcoming Cass Avenue sandwich shop Spread Deli and Cafe is getting closer to opening near the Willis Street intersection. The restaurant, which is located near Treat Dreams and Royale With Cheese, is expected to debut in early September.
There’s a new team running the scene at Big Rock Chophouse in Birmingham.

Chef Voigt has been with Big Rock since 2011 as executive pastry chef and prior to that worked at Tribute in Farmington Hills, Saltwater Bourbon Steak in the MGM Grand Casino, and the Dali Group Restaurants.
