Corktown newcomer Grandma Bob’s is overhauling its menu this week. The Detroit Optimist Society restaurant, which debuted in March at 2135 Michigan Ave., is preparing to switch out some items from its opening menu in favor of vegetarian and vegan pizza options and pizza by the slice.

The new pizzas will replace the egg-topped potato pizza on the restaurant’s opening menu, while adding two additional pizzas for a total of eight. Alongside coney pizza and taco pizza, vegetarians will now have a burger-themed Big Mack option with Impossible Burger crumbles, vegan mozzarella, vegan Thousand Island dressing, pickles, lettuce, onions, and a sesame crust. The spinach and artichoke pizza is also prepared with vegan mozzarella and parmesan.

Likewise, Grandma Bob’s is ramping lunch hours in tandem with the rollout of a pizza by the slice menu. Slices ranging from $3 to $4 each will be available from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday through Sunday at the restaurant for dine-in and carryout.

The updated menu is slated to roll out on Friday, May 3. Take a peek at the new options below.

Grandma Bob’s opens from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday and (starting Friday, May 3) from 11 a.m. to midnight on Friday and Saturday and 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Sunday.

Correction: A previous version of this story mistated that the new menu starts in March.
