The Plum Market grocery, takeout meal and light dining shop at 500 Woodward Ave. in downtown Detroit plans to open Wednesday. The company had anticipated a spring launch.

Original article, March 1:

A door sign says "Spring 2019." That's when Plum Market plans to open an 8,000-square-foot dining space with fast casual dining options, takeout, limited groceries and a bar inside the Ally Detroit Center at 500 Woodward Ave. in downtown Detroit.

Plum is known for high-quality food that's often pricey. 

Hours will be 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. weekdays and 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. weekends. Alcoholic beverages will be available with meals.

The company site says:

This new location will feature an onsite kitchen serving chef crafted, prepared foods for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Grab & Go food options will include self-service hot foods, peak of season salads, all natural soups, signature sandwiches, and fresh sushi made onsite by Mon Jin Lau.

Plum Market’s space will also include a full-service bar offering wine, local beer, and craft spirits, as well as a coffee bar brewing Zingerman’s Coffee. Packaged snacks and fresh cut flowers will be available for retail, alongside Zingerman’s artisan baked goods and specialty candies. 

The location will be home to “The Spirit Room,” Plum Market’s rentable event space with outdoor seating overlooking the Spirit of Detroit.

The empty space had been a cafeteria serving sandwiches, burgers, salads and sushi.
