GR's Downtown Market adding 'Juju Bird' restaurant

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Grand Rapids’ Downtown Market and the Alger Heights neighborhood will soon welcome new restaurants.

The  Downtown Market says the brothers and owners of Rak Thai plan to open  Juju Bird in October. It will take over the space that was previously  home to Making Thyme Kitchen, which is getting its own building at 2409  Eastern Ave. in Alger Heights.

The Downtown Market says Juju Bird  will serve up buttermilk fried chicken as well as wings, chicken tenders  and fried chicken sandwiches with traditional sides like mashed  potatoes and pasta salad. The owners of Juju Bird plan to use  all-natural, non-GMO chicken in their dishes.

Juju Bird customers can dine in or order take out or catering.

Co-owner  Blon Hang says Rak Thai just marked its best year ever and he and his  brother are excited to open the new concept restaurant.

Construction on Juju Bird is expected to start Sept. 2; Making Thyme Kitchen expects to open its new kitchen and store during the second week of September.
