For the Love of Sugar officially swung open its doors on Monday inside The Scott building in Brush Park. The 1,500-square-foot bakery will offer an array of French macarons and specialty cakes with fun flavors like Nutella and Fruity Pebbles, as well as other sweet treats. It will also offer coffee and a healthy grab-and-go lunch menu.

Debuting last weekend in Eastern Market, Amore da Roma has officially opened in the former Roma Cafe space. Headed by Chef Guy Pelino, who worked as the executive chef at the Roma Cafe for four years, the space has been completely renovated, including a new bar area and an updated kitchen. Still, space honors the original restaurant style and menu with staples like veal parmesan plus expanded seafood selections and certified Angus steaks.

Filling the former Mid City Grill space, Bolero Latin Cuisine debuted earlier this month in Midtown. Owned by the team behind Vicente's Cuban Cuisine, the restaurant features Latin American dishes, including Brazilian, Peruvian, and Argentinian cuisine, with an emphasis on imaginative tapas and ceviche. The location also touts a full bar, stocked with Sangrias, Pisco Sours, and Caipirinhas.

Founders Brewing Co. opened its new brewery and taproom in Midtown this month. It is the second ever location for the 20-year-old brewery based in Grand Rapids. Like the Grand Rapids location, the menu will features handcrafted sandwiches and appetizers, but with its “own distinct attitude.” The location also features a variety of Detroit exclusive brews currently on tap like the DTRX-Vienna Lager and the Devil Dancer Triple IPA.

On Our Radar:

The team behind Selden Standard has announced they will be opening a new, upscale Mediterranean restaurant in New Center. “Our second restaurant project is underway. It's still quite early, but we'll have plenty of updates and preview events to share in 2018,” the restaurant reported on Facebook. With the new venture headed by our 2016 Restaurant of the Year, suffice to say we’re excited.
