Farmington's Chive Kitchen, one of metro Detroit's most beloved vegan spots
, has been forced to adapt due to the economic toll of the coronavirus crisis. The restaurant is now carry-out only, and owner Suzy Silvestre says it might never return as a sit-down spot.
Silvestre told The Free Press
that she switched to carry-out when she realized the situation in Michigan wasn't going to change anytime soon. "It’s just not going to be the same for a long time," she said.
For now, "Chive En Casa" orders can be placed by phone or online 24 hours in advance, and picked up from a shelf at a designated time. Silvestre says she also accepts catering orders.
Located in a strip mall in downtown Farmington, the four-year old, 45-seat restaurant had earned a reputation as a hip, slightly upscale 100% vegan spot.
Chive Kitchen is located at 33043 Grand River Ave., Farmington; 248-516-7144; chivekitchen.com/preparedveganmeals.
