Detroit-area restaurants that opened during the pandemic that you may have missed


The pandemic served us some pretty devastating news, including statistics about business closures. It is estimated that more than 17% of restaurants in the U.S. closed permanently as a result of the pandemic. Nevertheless, some restaurant owners dared to dream and braved the storm to open their doors to serve their communities during a pandemic. From conveyor belt sushi, seafood boils, vegan baked goods, and long-awaited farm-to-table goodness, metro Detroit's dining scene got a bit bigger — and richer — at a difficult time. Eat locally and, remember, tip like a motherfucker.
