Has the Detroit restaurant scene hit a critical mass of openings?
Not in the city’s Jefferson-Chalmers neighborhood on the eastside where Detroit News features reporter Melody Baetens says there’s still gaps to be filled — and Norma G’s is an example of a food-truck-turned-brick-and-mortar that is filling a need in a neighborhood outside of downtown Detroit.
“We don’t see a lot of new restaurants opening in the Jefferson-Chalmers neighborhood,” says Baetens. “Detroit does have a lot Caribbean restaurants, but this specific region we don’t see a lot of.”
You can find more info about restaurant hours and address via Norma G’s official Facebook page.
