The residents of Grandmont-Rosedale have very few dining options. According to a recent Next City article
, that's caused approximately $107 million of economic leakage as those residents travel to the suburbs or downtown Detroit for meals.

and FoodLab Detroit
recently joined forces and won a grant from the state to begin planning for a food hall that could foster a more robust restaurant scene and be a boon for the local economy overall," writes Oscar Perry Abello.

There are not yet any details about when the hall will be completed.
