This month, we see the restaurant closures outweighing the openings.
Part of that speaks to the real estate boom in places like Corktown, where Casey's Pub failed to stay afloat amid growing competition. In its place next month will be an as-of-yet-named dive bar that will feature Cali-style tacos (don't worry, folks, it will not be called Hoffa's Hideout, as originally noted).
Meanwhile, we saw yet another sushi spot, Sushi Coup, quietly open in Rochester Hills, while the state's first two full-service Chick-fil-A chains opened in Troy and Lansing, as well as the reopening of Como's in Ferndale, which in September, shuttered temporarily because of a long list of health code violations.
