Good Girls Go to Paris
, the cleverly-named restaurant hit in Detroit's Midtown, is set to open a space in Grosse Pointe Park on Saturday.
Interest in the new location on Charlevoix near Alter, just across the border of Detroit, is high. Likes and comments from Grosse Pointers on the Good Girls Facebook page stacked up like pancakes in the days since the opening announcement from owner Torya Blanchard.
Good Girls will serve up its mix of savory and sweet crepes inspired by the time Blanchard spent in Paris. Blanchard is seen as an one of metro Detroit's entrepreneurs to watch.
The creperie will operate from two storefronts, one formerly an organic bistro, and add to a growing menu of restaurants in the city's Cabbage Patch business districts, including Greengo's, a vegetarian and vegan take out and sidewalk cafe.
"I think the opening of Good Girls Go To Paris has the ability to transform the Charlevoix business district. It's a destination place; well-known throughout the metro area, good food and a cool, upbeat vibe that people enjoy," says Grosse Pointe Park City Council member Laurie Arora. "Torya Blanchard is a remarkable business woman and I'm so glad she chose to open a creperie in the Park."
