Closing time

After closing in 2019, the wrecking ball has finally come down on the Italian family restaurant Pasquale’s. The eatery sat on a large parcel of land at 31555 Woodward Avenue north of 13 Mile Road. Pasquale’s was owned and operated by the Del Giudice family since 1954. The site will now be home of a Big Boy restaurant and perhaps additional dining options, although no other names have been confirmed at this time.  After opening in 2017, Gus’s Fried Chicken in Royal Oak has shuttered its operation in Royal Oak at 31105 Woodward Avenue just north of 13 Mile Road. It is one of three locations in metro Detroit for the Memphis-based chain. The other two locations in Detroit and Westland remain open. Upscale Albena restaurant, located within the Siren Hotel in Detroit, has announced that they closed on March 16. Owners Tiffany and Garrett Lipar announced the closure on Instagram. “In 2017,” the couple wrote, “we set out to build the most intimate and ambitious tasting menu-only restaurant in the Great Lakes. With the support of Ash USA, we were able to realize our dream in the Siren Hotel. We’ve made so many partnerships, friends and relationships. We have cooked, plated, served and cleaned so many dishes. We are incredibly proud of the service that came from this kitchen.”
