Round-Up: Zef's opens on Woodward, more Conner Creek Greenway under construction

Is there a Detroit block with more food and drink options than Woodward between Larned and Congress? From south to north, there's Motor City Wine, Foran's Deluxe Diner, Grand Trunk Pub, Bangkok Crossing and Vine Wine Bar.

Now, in the First National Building space that briefly was home to Small Plates To Go, Zef's has opened a second location. The restaurant seats about 30 and also offers carry-out. It's open 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Call 313-962-2077.

The Riverfront Terminus of the Conner Creek Greenway is currently being built. This segment follows Clairpointe from Jefferson south to Maheras Gentry Park and includes bike lanes and landscaping along Clairpointe and a new trail and landscaping on the west side of the park. Construction is slated to be complete by end of October.

This summer, another segment of the greenway, one mile of bike lanes along St. Jean between Jefferson and Mack, was completed. The next stretch will run alongside Mt. Olivet Cemetery on Conner. The entire trail system is slated to be complete in 2013.
