Popular Dearborn burger joint, Brome Modern Eatery, to open downtown restaurant

Brome Modern Eatery on Michigan Avenue in Dearborn has received a lot of well-deserved praise. The fast-casual eatery, which serves high-quality burgers and sides, is certainly delicious. But according to Brome, it also uses "100 percent organic, grass-fed beef, ethically sourced with natural ingredients."

And it's opening a second location in downtown Detroit.

Brome, which was founded in 2015, also serves salads, juices, and the Impossible Burger, a plant-based burger that looks and tastes remarkably like a beef burger. 

"While everyone loves a good burger, consumers need balance in their lives, including tasty raw ingredients, which is exactly why we wanted to bring healthy and organic options to Detroiters," said Sam Abbas, founder and CEO of Brome Modern Eatery, in a press release. "We are bringing diverse offerings that cater to multiple preferences, including vegans, vegetarians, those that are gluten free, and consumers who are just looking for more healthy choices, while still enjoying what they are eating."

The new restaurant will be housed in a 6,000-square-foot space at 607 Shelby St. Like its flagship location, there will be a two-story "living wall" to simulate a canopy of trees. The restaurant will also feature a mural by Detroit artist Wetiko.

Brome Modern Eatery's downtown location at 607 Shelby St. will host a "grand opening" for media and party-goers on May 12 from 4 to 8 p.m. with an appearance by Detroit Lions player Ziggy Ansah.
