Grosse Pointe Park's much anticipated new restaurant, Red Crown, is waiting for final inspections, according to a post on Facebook this week.
Once the restaurant receives its final approval, employees will need about five days to prepare for the grand opening, according to the post.
The restaurant was originally slated to open in late January. A call by Patch to the owner, Mindy Lopus, was not returned but residents in the Grosse Pointes have been anxiously awaiting the opening and asking about when it will open on Facebook and Patch.
Red Crown is one of three eateries Lopus plans to open in the Park on Kercheval Avenue. It is located in the long-vacant Standard Oil building.
The others are Bona Fide Bakery, which will go into the former Mulier's Market, and Tallulah's are expected to open following Red Crown.
The bakery is slated to open second, with an original goal of early February, and Tallulah's in late spring, according to estimates previously given to Patch.
Facebook fans were given a sneak peak into the restaurant Wednesday.
Red Crown will feature local, fresh produce, American comfort foods with a Southern influence and wood-fire grilled burgers plus homemade ice creams.
