Bucharest Grill is returning to downtown Detroit with a new location just a few blocks west of Comerica Park.

The new spot, at 436 W. Columbia St. near Cass Avenue, is also just a few blocks north of the shawarma restaurant's original location inside the former Park Bar, which closed and relocated to a strip mall on East Jefferson in 2016.

Eater reports that construction is underway and the location — Bucahrest's fifth — should be open by early August. Aside from shawarmas, the new 120-seat spot will have a bar with 18 to 24 beers on tap, wine, and possibly cocktails.

Bucharest also has locations in Corktown, northwest Detroit, and Milwaukee Junction.
