Success to Celebrate: Russell Street Deli

While several restaurants and other new businesses are floundering and reading the daily news begins to feel more like viewing the timeline of a city shutting down, it's nice to hear some stories of success.

Enter Russell Street Deli, located in Detroit's year-round farmer's market Eastern Market, which beat the odds to actually increase sales and profits. Read the article as reported by CNN here.

In the meantime, Russell Street Deli is now open at 7:00AM daily (except Sundays) for breakfast, and continues to serve a popular (and crowded, and noisy) lunch in a lively communal setting. The pulled pork and corned beef are most popular, but the menu boasts a variety of vegetarian and vegan options as well, and utilizes fresh vegetables from the Market itself in a menu that changes daily to accommodate availability.

Thanks to David at the Incorrigible City for finding this piece.
