As business and activity continues to expand in Downtown Detroit, the city’s food and restaurant industry is growing and changing.

What were some of the notable changes and additions in 2018?

This week, we learned that Hard Rock Cafe will be closing its location in Downtown Detroit. Also, the building that houses Supino’s and Russell St. Deli in Eastern Market was sold earlier this year.
