From a 1/2/20 Detroit News article on restaurant openings on the horizon in 2020:

“Kuzzo's Chicken and Waffles re-opening: This hot spot on Detroit's Avenue of Fashion decided to close and renovate while the street and sidewalks out front were also getting an overhaul. It's been a construction project that has plagued many businesses on that strip. The neighborhood destination, which has all-day breakfast, is shooting for a February return and is now hiring staff. 19345 Livernois, Detroit.”

Link to MetroTimes article “Black-owned Detroit restaurants you should have tried by now.” Five of the places listed are on Livernois just north of campus, a couple more on McNichols. Just in case someone is looking for a place to dine out next week.

Legacy City Group is renovating a vacant commercial space at 7316 W. McNichols to open the Detroit Pizza Bar, restaurant that will hire and train local residents for food-service careers and support local farmers. The project involves 4,500 square feet of space and will cost $1.3 million when completed. It’s three and a half blocks west of campus.

The developers’ vision “is of a space that welcomes the community, and it is driving their design choices. Large glass windows and a shaded rooftop deck ensure the community feels visible and connected to the new developments happening along this commercial corridor targeted for Strategic Neighborhood Fund investment. With a varied menu and high-quality, locally-grown ingredients, they will provide healthy, delicious food options for a variety of palettes with both affordability and community support in mind.”
