Goodbye to a Townie staple: Homestyle Italian restaurant, Argiero’s, has closed its doors after 40 years of serving up classics in Ann Arbor.

All the gravy: Smoke’s Poutinerie, the famed poutine chain restaurant, will open soon in the 1300 block of South University, joining the neighborhood of The Blue Leprechaun, Bubble Island, and Insomnia Cookies.

Not just vodka and tonic: A new cocktail bar has opened on Downtown Ann Arbor’s Main Street. Nightcap is now open nightly 5 pm-2 am (closed Tuesdays), shaking up craft cocktails that are already receiving glowing reviews from a typically picky community.

One is gone but not the other: Maize and Blue Deli of Ann Arbor has closed its Downtown location after 28 years. The location on South University is still open for all your sandwich needs!

Tacos on the patio: Chela’s Restaurant and Taqueria is set to open its second location in Downtown Ann Arbor by the end of July at 307 Fifth Ave. for all those summer tacos.

Congrats, Kosmo: Kerrytown’s Kosmo Korean & American Fare is opening a second location this month in downtown Ann Arbor, bringing its unique menu of burgers and bibimbap to yet another A2 spot.

The too-long wait for Buddy’s Pizza in Pittsfield Place on Ann Arbor Saline Road should soon come to an end. Lovers of this famed Detroit pizza should be able to bite in by this fall— in time for University of Michigan football season.

Unholy smokes: The St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store, located in Downtown Ann Arbor’s oldest commercial building, is temporarily closed due to a fire. The organization is taking donations at this time to get back up and running. For more information, visit: svdpaa.org/

Sava’s Restaurant on State Street to celebrate its 10-year anniversary this month. A black tie affair will be held to commemorate the milestone and to thank all those in the community that have made the venue a success.
