Marrow, the high-end steak house with roots in Detroit is expanding its operations into Oakland County with plans to open a butcher shop in Birmingham.

Marrow Detroit Provisions already operates in a location in Eastern Market and plans to open their storefront on Hamilton Row in the spring of 2024. A brief construction period is necessary before the eatery opens for business, a news release said.

It's the first time that Marrow has expanded outside of Detroit. It'll offer sandwiches, savory snacks, and coffee throughout the day for both dine-in and take-out options.

According to its founder, Marrow had enough support selling meats at farmers markets in Birmingham that it decided the city would be a great place to expand. 

"Marrow is here to build and support a robust and sustainable food system in partnership with our farmers," said Ping Ho, CEO and founder. "We are excited to be in our first location outside of Detroit."
