Juice bar expansion
Seemingly ever-growing metro Detroit juice bar chain Beyond Juicery + Eatery is adding a location in Northville. This will be the eighth location for the group, which operates restaurants in Eastern Market, Southfield, Birmingham, and more. Beyond Juicery serves items like smoothies, juices, acai bowls, wraps, and sandwiches. The new location is expected to open near Meijer this spring.
Bathroom sign goes AWOL
Southwest Detroit ramen restaurant Johnny Noodle King is seeking information on the whereabouts of its “cherished” plastic restroom sign, which was stolen from the building’s facilities. This one is apparently a copy of the original sign. It reads: “Free toilet paper please cherish the use.”
They Say expansion
The Rivertown Warehouse District’s beloved jazz restaurant They Say is adding a new location around Eastland Mall near Kelly Road and East Eight Mile. The restaurant is expected to open in March. Eater has reached out for more details on the project. The owners are hosting interview sessions for positions at the new location from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Wednesday, February 7 at original Jos Campau restaurant.
The Detroit Free Press’s Mark Kurlyandchik is doing his annual countdown of the top 10 restaurants this week in the lead up to Restaurant of the Year. The restaurant critic has already revealed five businesses that received consideration but did not quite make the cut. They include Culantro, New Seoul Plaza, Rocco’s Italian Deli, Delphine’s Jamaican Restaurant, and Adachi. Katsu and Urban Ramen also didn’t make the cut because they qualified as chains.
Nightclub up for grabs
Boogie Fever Cafe & Disco in Ferndale is apparently on the market, approximately a year after it was revived in its former location, Crain’s reports. The sale price has not been listed.
