Driving on Livernois today I noticed signage for a new Biggby Coffee shop that looks like it might open soon. It's a bit north of campus closer to Seven Mile Road. Below is an article from a year ago that talks about the project:

From Crains Detroit, a report on a new upscale restaurant in the University neighborhood:

Surf n' turf on the avenue

An upscale steak-and-seafood restaurant is joining the Avenue of Fashion food scene in northwest Detroit. Good Times on the Avenue replaces 1917 American Bistro, which closed abruptly in January.

New restaurant owners Derrick and Ladonna Reynolds have invested nearly $500,000 buying the building at 19416 Livernois Ave. and remodeling it. They expect to host a soft opening in mid-December.

Good Times, which Derrick describes as "fine dining, white tablecloth," will serve traditional American dishes with lobster, shrimp, steak and lamb chops. He said he expects appetizers to go for $17-$22 and entrées for $25-$60.

"We're trying to support the Sherwood Forest, Palmer Woods, University District" neighborhoods of Detroit, Derrick said.

The restaurant seats 98 on its two indoor floors and 53 on a patio. Both floors will have bars; the upstairs is more of a lounge, with small plates served. It will have a staff of 25.

The Reynolds' Detroit-based construction company, Reynolds Renovation, has overseen work on the project.

Good Times is sandwiched between two well-known Livernois Avenue restaurants, Bucharest Grill and Kuzzo's Chicken & Waffles, between Seven and Eight Mile roads. It's also a $40,000 Motor City Match grant winner.
