Do you like Burgers? Yes? Do you like Wes Anderson flicks? Yes? Then we have the place for you. 

Loverboy, the new restaurant brought forward by owner Eli Boyer will be setting up at the 28 Grand Building, according to Eater Detroit

Eater reports that it will be inspired by the Wes Anderson movies, and will be run by 2 Culinary Institute of America chefs, and will use grass-fed Michigan Beef.  

They also note that pricing will be "approachable," as well as have things like "hand-cut fries, veggie burgers, craft beer, ice cream made in-house, boozy slushies, and adult milkshakes."

Detroit Free Press food critic Mark Kurlyandchik recently just set out a request for something other than burgers, but it seems as if this plan is going to be based more on a cool design and Michigan meat, rather than just another run of the mill burger joint. 

Please let the workers dress as Khaki Scouts in the summer, and like The Royal Tenenbaums in the winter. Be sure to keep your ears to the ground, we're sure this will get the hipsters running.
