Detroit's Firebird Tavern is spreading its wings.

The restaurant near Greektown is expanding with a new location in Troy. Work is now underway at 4845 Rochester Rd., which housed Sharks BBQ until the business closed last year. 

So far, crews have added a new covered patio and a new roof, and the Firebird sign is up. They've also been inside working to get it ready.

Firebird Tavern's Detroit location opened in 2013. It features a casual menu along with craft beer and cocktails.

An opening date hasn't been announced yet.
