A new restaurant will be opening on the Hill this spring named Luxe Bar and Grille. Construction is on-going in the former Lucy's restaurant at 115 Kercheval Ave.
Lucy's closed last summer permanently. A sign initially told passersby of a plumbing problem that needed to be fixed but the restaurant had been in default on financial obligations.
The new restaurant is currently underway, Grosse Pointe Farms Director of Public Service Terry Brennan said. The opening will likely be in late spring, he said, citing the pace of construction.
The restaurant is one of many new businesses to make the Hill its home in the last several months. Capricious, a high-end shoe and accessory store, opened in November next to the League Shop; Beaumont Grosse Pointe opened a Vein Center in the last two months; and F&H For the Home opened earlier this month in the former Bambu space featuring home decor and interior design services.
Additionally, Brennan said Talmer Bank is moving into 99 Kercheval Ave. That space is being renovated for the bank and will likely be ready in late April or in May, he said.
Additionally, American House Senior Living Center is preparing to complete renovations to the second and third floor of the former Cottage Hospital, Brennan said.
