Rodin is Ro-Dunzo, Crepe Place to Take Slot

New, 25 comments

The owner of two businesses in the Park Shelton building off Woodward Ave will now be down to one. Rodin, the bar owned by Torya Schoeniger (formerly Blanchard) is closing and Torya's crêpe business, Good Girls Go to Paris, will be moving into the Rodin space and vacating its former storefront. The news comes a few months after Rodin's chef parted ways with Torya to strike out on her own. In the interim, Rodin experimented with some pop up things, but failed to really make it as a restaurant. This is Torya's second or third failed venture, depending upon how you keep score of the sad weird history of her Hamtramck storefront that never opened, dubbed Ooties. Her second Good Girls location in Grosse Pointe, however, did manage to open before flopping.
Torya took to facebook (Detroit's PR Newswire) to share the news of Rodin's demise and put it thusly in her personal status:
I'm just going to Tony Stark it-Here is my news- Good Girls is moving into the Rodin space. Good Girls with more room and a liquor license. If you have know someone with a business that wants to go in the current Good Girls space call the Park Shelton 872-7275. Rodin was a fun project, but I need to simplify my life, travel, get into some adventures, and be with John. That's what life's all about. Here's to 2014
As the song goes, "Should Old Acquaintance be forgot, and never thought upon." Peace out Rodin, we barely knew ye.
