Just across from Slows BBQ on Michigan Ave., the site that was once Mercury Coffee is quickly being transformed into the Mercury Burger Bar. While the window's are papered to hide the interior, a peek inside indicates good things to come. In the meantime, the patio is cleaned up and paved and looking ready for some warmer weather in which we can drink outdoors. Damn you, Michigan winters!
The building is owned by Joe Mifsud and Bryan Brincat who leased it to two people that will run the burger bar. One is David Steinke, the owner and general manager of Joe Kool's in Troy and the other is Dennis Fulton. They are not ready to announce an opening date yet. For updates, check out the facebook page for the Burger Bar; the official web page is not up yet.
