New Restaurant In The Works for Downtown

Posted by – Steve Cohen, Director of Community Development

We have been receiving many inquiries asking about what’s planned for the former Elwell Grill located at 3315 Auburn Road in Downtown Auburn Hills.  The City of Auburn Hills is happy to report that a new family oriented restaurant is planned for the location.

New owner, Nick Lucaj, has submitted a building permit to renovate and upgrade both the inside and outside of the building.  Nick’s plans are to create a warm and friendly eatery that will be open seven days a week for lunch and dinner.  His menu will focus on burgers, pizza, salads, steaks, fish, and excellent desserts – all with affordable prices so that a family can enjoy a night out together.

Nick expects to open sometime in January 2015 and is still in the process of finalizing a name for the restaurant.  So, stay tuned for more information as the project progresses.
